Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are common with estimates of up to 70-80% of women having these benign tumors within the uterus.  At the Women's Wellness Clinic, we have a comprehensive approach to management of uterine fibroids.  First, it is important to understand what type of symptoms you may have related to fibroids. Do you have too much bleeding? Do you have pressure, pain, or an impact on bladder/bowel function? Do you have a problem becoming pregnant or are you experiencing miscarriages? 

We actively promote the latest and most effective treatment for fibroids. Management ranges from reassurance, to either medical and/or surgical options.  We are involved in the latest research relating to uterine fibroids - and have forged relationships with those at UNC, Duke University, and Triangle Interventional Radiology to bring you the latest options.

We offer state-of-the-art pelvic ultrasound, saline based sonography and office based hysteroscopy within the comforts of our clinic.  Knowing what type of fibroid you may have (submucosal versus subserosal) is important in deciding what you can do for treatment.

Dr. Lukes was one of the principal investigators for the new MyoSure hysteroscopic resection of uterine fibroids. Further, we are currently enrolling women into a clinical research study on fibroids.

 You DO NOT have to suffer anymore! We will go over your options and work with you to develop a plan that you feel confident in. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
