Introducing Some of the Latest Options to Treat Uterine Fibroids

Perhaps you’ve heard the only option for uterine fibroids is a hysterectomy. Not anymore. At the Fibroid Center at Hahnemann University Hospital, we’ve brought together some leading specialists and advanced technology to provide women with new solutions and new options.

Fibroids are the most common tumors of the female genital tract, affecting 20 to 50 percent of women in the United States. Symptoms may include heavy bleeding, clotting, pain and infertility. The discomfort and embarrassment of these symptoms lead many women to seek treatment. However fibroids often fail to respond to medical therapy. Until now that left only surgical procedures such as a hysterectomy or myomectomy (surgical removal of the fibroids). Such procedures meant a longer hospital stay and recuperation time, along with an altering of lifestyles for many of these patients. 

New treatment options can offer both physical and emotional benefits to the patients. At Hahnemann’s Fibroid Center, specialists offer a multidisciplinary approach to provide alternative treatments to hysterectomy. With advancements in technology, physicians, together with other medical professionals from various disciplines, now perform uterine artery embolization, a minimally invasive procedure, to treat fibroids, leaving the uterus in place. 

Thanks to the new advances in treatment, removing fibroids without major surgery is an attainable goal for many women. The Fibroid Center at Hahnemann University can answer your questions and provide you with options. Contact the Center and make an appointment for an evaluation. Because the right choice for you could be one you don’t even know about.
