Uterine Fibroids

A-Z Index

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that develop on or in the uterus. They often cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding and uncomfortable pressure on the bladder or rectum, and can lead to problems with fertility.

Virtua offers a wide range of treatments for uterine fibroids including non-invasive, minimally invasive and traditional surgical treatments. Treatments are customized to the patient's needs and may include:

  • Hormone and/or medication therapy
  • Pain management
  • Minimally invasive (laparoscopic) or traditional surgery
  • Uterine fibroid embolization

Virtua is South Jersey's leading provider of OB/GYN care, and a great resource for finding a board-certified OB/GYN or interventional radiologist with experience in treating uterine fibroids.

Call 1-888-VIRTUA-3 (1-888-847-8823) for an appointment with a Virtua doctor.


Uterine Fibroid Treatment and Services

Uterine fibroid treatment options vary based on several factors including:

  • Severity of symptoms

  • Personal and lifestyle factors

An OB/GYN can help patients choose the right therapy for their needs.

Virtua offers conservative to advanced treatments for uterine fibroids including:

  • Hormone and medication therapy
  • Pain management
  • Minimally invasive and traditional surgery to remove fibroids
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Hysterectomy, if necessary, including minimally invasive options

Learn more about minimally invasive surgery through robotic-assisted surgery, which uses a state-of-the-art surgical system. The technology allows the doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, patients may be able to get back to life faster without the usual recovery following major surgery.
