Dr. Bratter has many years of experience treating uterine fibroids and the associated symptoms.
Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus. Fibroids are extremely common, affecting approximately 40% of women.
Common symptoms associated with fibroids are:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Pelvic pressure or pain
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty emptying the bladder
- Backache or leg pains
Not all fibroids require treatment or surgery. Treatment options vary depending on symptoms, size and location.
