Expert Care for Uterine Fibroids by Leading Fibroid Specialists

Uterine fibroids are very common, with most women having at least one fibroid by age 50. At Mount Sinai’s Fibroid Center of New York, our highly skilled physicians have special expertise in the treatment of fibroids. Offering both medical and alternative treatments, we will develop a safe and effective treatment plan using the most advanced therapies, specifically tailored to your specific situation and needs.

While some women with fibroids have no symptoms, others experience bloating, pelvic pain, irregular or heavy bleeding, problems with fertility or pregnancy, or frequent urination. If symptoms cause you discomfort or disrupt your everyday activities, you need a doctor who focuses on fibroid care.

We offer a full range of treatment options, including:

  • Supplemental vitamin D and green tea: Medical research shows that these supplements can suppress fibroid growth and reduce symptoms.
  • Birth control pills: These reduce bleeding symptoms and cramping.
  • Progesterone-releasing intrauterine device: This device slowly releases the hormone progesterone to help reduce bleeding.
  • Hormonal therapy: This approach suppresses fibroid growth and abnormal bleeding.
  • Radiofrequency ablation (Sonata System): A minimally invasive treatment, this approach breaks up fibroids using heat. Most women can return to normal activity the day after the procedure. 
  • Uterine fibroid embolization: Our interventional radiologists insert a small tube called a catheter into your wrist or groin. We use it to deliver small particles that block the blood supply to the fibroid, causing the fibroid to die.
  • Surgical removal: We can use an abdominal incision, enter through the vagina without incision, or take a robotic/laparoscopic approach, with three to five small incisions.
  • Hysterectomy: If necessary, we might remove the uterus; we may also remove the ovaries and cervix if required by the situation.

We know you—and your medical needs—are unique. We take the time to talk with you about your symptoms, listen to your needs, and check your condition. Then we prescribe a plan that will get you back on the path to well-being.
