Tests & Treatments

  • Abdominal Hysterectomy
    Our expert physicians and surgeons can help to expertly diagnose and treat your fibroid tumors.

  • Endometrial Ablation
    An endometrial ablation is a procedure that destroys the uterine lining and is used to treat dysfunctional or abnormal uterine bleeding.

  • Hysterectomy
    If you have severe fibroid tumors, endometriosis, cancer or endometrial hyperplasia, you and your physician may decide that a hysterectomy is the right treatment for you.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Myomectomy
    If you have been diagnosed with fibroid tumors, a myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tumors while leaving the uterus intact, thus preserving your ability to become pregnant.

  • Ultrasound
    An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, including the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver.

  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization
    This procedure, performed by trained interventional radiologists, blocks the arteries feeding blood to the fibroid tumors, thus allowing them to shrink and preserving the uterus.

  • Vaginal Hysterectomy
    If you are diagnosed with symptomatic fibroids (noncancerous tumors of the uterus), a vaginal hysterectomy may be an appropriate treatment option.
