NYU Langone doctors provide treatment for fibroids, which are noncancerous growths in the uterus, or womb. Fibroids can cause a variety of symptoms, depending on their location and number. Symptoms include heavy menstrual periods, anemia from excessive blood loss, infertility, and pelvic pain. Our doctors, including specialists from NYU Langone’s Center for Fibroid Care, prescribe medications, perform surgery, and offer procedures to reduce menstrual blood flow, lessen or eliminate pain, improve fertility, and prevent fibroid recurrence.
NYU Langone gynecologists treat fibroids with watchful waiting, medications, nonsurgical treatments, and surgical approaches designed to resolve symptoms and restore quality of life. Our doctors, who are trained in the latest surgical techniques and procedures, are actively involved in research into new treatments.
