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).

Testimonials  
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...
SM

Thank you for being so kind and gentle to me yesterday. After meeting you I have all the confidence in the world concerning your ability.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and your staff for the very caring and considerate treatment I received before, during and after my UFE procedure....Everyone I encountered during this process made me feel that they truly cared and were concerned about my well being. All of you went above and beyond the call of your duties. I have bragged that I have the best doctor and that I wished that all doctors were as caring and concerned for their patients as you and your staff were for me. The procedure was just what I needed to get through the horrible symptoms that had become my day-to-day existence. Now, I have a sense of normalcy again. I have you and your staff to thank for that.
