Center for Fibroid Care

We are located in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

At the Center for Fibroid Care, our doctors provide the most advanced and innovative treatments for fibroid disease. Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors, can cause heavy and prolonged periods, pelvic pain, and bladder symptoms. Fibroids can also impact sexual health and fertility. Many women experience fibroid symptoms for years, unaware that there are effective treatment options.

We recognize that fibroid disease can significantly affect many aspects of women’s lives. Our goal is to create an individualized care plan for each of our patients, understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We focus on your quality-of-life goals and preferences, addressing anemia and possible pregnancy plans when providing you with options to minimize or remove fibroid disease.

Our team believes in continuing to research this chronic and recurrent disease. We are conducting clinical outcome studies that look at lifestyle changes after surgery and their effects on fibroid recurrence, and the use of radiofrequency ablation and its effect on quality of life. We are also drafting best-practice scripts to help providers counsel patients effectively about fibroid disease.

Our Approach to Fibroid Care

We offer a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together expertise from various specialty areas, including surgeons, hematologists, interventional radiologists, obstetricians, fertility specialists, and nutritionists. We explain all treatment options, starting with medications and lifestyle choices. We also offer active surveillance for fibroid disease and follow you throughout your reproductive journey.

When treatment with an interventional procedure is needed, we offer nonsurgical approaches, including radiofrequency ablation and uterine fibroid embolization to shrink fibroids, and surgical procedures, such as myomectomy and hysterectomy. Nearly all myomectomies and hysterectomies are performed by doctors who are experts in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, which uses small incisions that result in less pain and quicker recovery time. Nonsurgical and surgical procedures all take place at NYU Langone Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates, Tisch Hospital, and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn.

Fibroid Treatment and Fertility

If you plan to become pregnant in the future, your doctor can discuss treatments for easing your symptoms, while also preserving—and in some cases improving—fertility. We can connect you with reproductive endocrinologists at the NYU Langone Fertility Center to discuss additional options, including egg freezing and in vitro fertilization.

Schedule a Consultation

We recommend all new patients schedule a telehealth consultation with our nurse practitioner, Holly O. Gorman, NP, by calling 646-754-3106 or scheduling online. At this first appointment, Mrs. Gorman talks with you about your health history, any fibroid-related symptoms, and your goals for treatment. Based on this information and your completed quality of life survey, she refers you to the appropriate specialists, who complete a full evaluation and develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses symptoms and supports your long-term goals.
