At the Center for Fibroid Care, our doctors provide the most advanced and innovative treatments for fibroids. Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors, can cause heavy and prolonged periods, pelvic pain, and bladder problems, as well as affect sexual health and fertility. Many women experience fibroid symptoms for years, unaware that there are effective treatment options. Our goal is to minimize or remove fibroids while also addressing your personal health goals, including any future pregnancy plans.
Center for Fibroid Care Discussions
Our team of experts hosts discussions on topics related to fibroids, including symptoms and treatment.Watch Our Panel Discussions
Our team brings together expertise from various specialty areas, including surgeons, interventional radiologists, obstetricians, fertility specialists, and nutritionists. We explain all of your treatment options, starting with medications and lifestyle choices, including vitamins and other supplements. If additional treatment is needed, we offer nonsurgical approaches, including ablation and embolization, to shrink fibroids, and surgical procedures such as myomectomy to remove them. Nonsurgical and surgical procedures take place at NYU Langone Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates, Tisch Hospital, and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn.
During your first visit, your doctor talks with you about your symptoms, how they impact your everyday life, and your treatment goals. After treatment, we provide ongoing therapies and recommendations for ways to reduce fibroid recurrence, including lifestyle changes, exercise, and diet recommendations.
If you plan to become pregnant in the future, your doctor can discuss with you treatments for easing symptoms while also preserving, and in some cases improving, fertility. We can connect you with our reproductive endocrinologists at the NYU Langone Fertility Center to discuss additional options, including egg freezing and in vitro fertilization.
We recommend all new patients schedule a telehealth consultation with our nurse practitioner, Holly O. Gorman, NP, by calling 646-754-3106 or scheduling online. At this first appointment, Mrs. Gorman talks with you about your health history, any fibroid-related symptoms, and your goals for treatment. Based on this information, she refers you to the appropriate specialists, who complete a full evaluation and develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses symptoms and supports your long-term goals.
After treatment, we provide ongoing therapies and recommendations for ways to reduce fibroid recurrence, including lifestyle changes, exercise, and diet recommendations.
