Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in or on the walls of the uterus (or womb). Fibroids are extremely common, with small fibroids occurring in more than 75 percent of women. Most women with uterine fibroids have no symptoms and do not need surgery. For women who do need treatment, our gynecological surgeons offer hysterectomy alternatives, including abdominal, laparoscopic, and robotic myomectomy.
