NYU Langone doctors treat fibroids, which are noncancerous growths in a woman’s uterus, or womb. Fibroids can cause heavy menstrual periods; anemia, a condition in which the body lacks oxygen-rich red blood cells; infertility; and pelvic pain. Our doctors prescribe medication or perform surgery to reduce menstrual blood flow, lessen or eliminate pain, and improve fertility.
Our gynecologic surgeons at NYU Langone's Robotic Surgery Center are experts in robotic surgery, which can be used to remove multiple large fibroids in a precise and minimally invasive way.
NYU Langone gynecologists treat fibroids with watchful waiting, medications, or surgical techniques designed to improve or resolve symptoms and restore a woman’s quality of life. Our doctors are trained in the latest surgical techniques, and our experts at NYU Langone’s Fertility Center are nationally renowned.
