Fibroids: Diagnosis and Treatments
Uterine fibroids are extremely common among women of childbearing years, though some cases remain undiagnosed. The National Institutes of Health estimates about half of all women have fibroids by age 50.
Uterine fibroids do not always cause symptoms, but when they do, it’s both excruciating and debilitating. Dr. Shilad’s experience enables him to diagnose and treat fibroids with expertise and confidence with a collaborative approach with the patient.
If Dr. Shilad suspects fibroids are the cause of your pelvic pain he may perform imaging such as a pelvic ultrasound. After being diagnosed, a specialized treatment plan will be developed using an integrative global approach that includes the individual patient.
