Expert Care for Uterine Fibroids

Many women of reproductive age are living with uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous growths of the uterus. Some women have no symptoms, while others experience bloating, pelvic pain, irregular or heavy bleeding, problems with fertility or pregnancy, or frequent urination.

If fibroid symptoms are causing you discomfort or are disrupting your everyday activities, it is time to see a doctor who specializes in fibroid care. At Mount Sinai’s Fibroid Center of New York, fibroid specialists will help determine the best treatment plan for you, including medical and alternative treatments.

To schedule an appointment with one of our experts, call 877-411-1548

We offer a full range of treatment options, including:

  • Birth control pills: to reduce bleeding symptoms and cramping
  • Progesterone-releasing intrauterine device (IUD): slowly releases the hormone progesterone to help reduce bleeding
  • Hormonal modulation: new hormonal treatment that suppresses fibroid growth and abnormal bleeding caused by fibroids
  • Radiofrequency ablation (Sonata): minimally invasive treatment that allows most women to return to normal activity the day after the procedure 
  • Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE): performed by interventional radiology, a catheter delivers small particles that block the blood supply to the fibroid, causing the fibroid to die
  • Surgical removal: typically depends on the size, number, and location of fibroids. Fibroid removal can be performed with an abdominal incision, through the vagina without incisions, or using a robotic/laparoscopic approach with three to five small incisions
  • Hysterectomy: removal of the uterus, with the possibility of removing ovaries or the cervix in some instances
  • Supplemental vitamin D and green tea: have been shown with medical research to suppress fibroid growth and reduce symptoms

We understand that every woman’s situation is unique. We’ll take the time to talk with you about your symptoms, listen to your needs, and then prescribe a plan that is right for you to best meet your desired goals and get you back on the path to well-being.
