Fibroid center

Our specialists offer the newest treatment options to remove fibroids, which are benign growths in the uterus. Our team of specialists, which includes gynecologists, urogynecologic surgeons and interventional radiologists are experts in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of fibroids. They work together with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan, taking into account the size and location of your fibroids, your age, overall health and future reproductive plans.

Fibroidsare very common in women of childbearing age, especially in women in their 30s and 40s. Although fibroids rarely progress to cancer, they can cause a variety of problems including heavy and/or painful menstrual periods, anemia, pelvic pain and pressure, constipation, frequent urination, pain during intercourse, infertility and miscarriage.

For years, the most common form of treatment for fibroids was a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus). However, recent advances in medical technology and surgical techniques have led to the development of less invasive treatments that often allow a woman to keep her uterus.
