The purpose of this web site is to educate patients about Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) and MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) two non-surgical, minimally invasive, exciting new treatment alternatives for symptomatic uterine fibroid tumors. Fibroids (leiomyomas) are benign tumors made of muscle tissue that grow in the uterus and are very common in women of child bearing age. Fibroids occur in one-third of all women and can cause significant symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, pelvic pressure, frequent urination, back pain, constipation and infertility. Traditional treatment options include hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) and myomectomy (surgical removal of only the fibroids). There are also multiple newer, less invasive treatment options available for fibroids including UFE, MRgFUS, laparoscopic surgery, hysteroscopic surgery and robotic surgery. No single treatment option is best for every fibroid patient. Determining the best treatment option for any given patient should take into account multiple factors including the size, number, location and blood supply to the fibroids, the patient's age, desire for future fertility and other medical problems (if any).



I just wanted to thank you for your help during my health crisis last week. The interest you showed and all things you did to accommodate me and get all test on time are really appreciated. It shows the great commitment you have to your patients and your profession. I am recovered now and back to my normal life.

I have only positive things to say about my experiences with you and everyone at St. Luke's....I would refer Dr. Fischer and his team to anyone and told [my doctor] that she made the best referral sending me to you...

From the time I first contacted Dr. Fischer's office and spoke with Dena, I was treated in a very professional and friendly manner. All of my questions were answered by both Kimberly and Dr. Fischer. Dr. Fischer was very easy to talk to and I was able to communicate my symptoms to him without feeling uncomfortable....I noticed a decrease in my symptoms the very first time I had a menstrual cycle after the procedure. Today, almost a year later, I am very pleased with the results of this procedure. A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Fischer and the radiology team. I am grateful for their professionalism, knowledge and skill.
