Rockville Gynecology is pleased to announce our new Uterine Fibroid Treatment Center. The Center provides advanced comprehensive treatment for women with uterine fibroids.
Fibroids are common, benign tumors present in 70% of women, often presenting with symptoms such as difficult urination, heavy menstrual bleeding, infertility and pain. Many women who have fibroids experience no symptoms, and doctors only find the fibroids during a routine examination.
Our patients have access to the latest fibroid treatments, including hormonal and non-hormonal management, as well as surgical options including minimally-invasive myomectomy (removal of fibroids) and hysterectomy (removal of uterus).
Rockville Gynecology's Uterine Fibroid Treatment Center brings together experts in the diagnosis and treatment of fibroids and provides women with a complete range of options that can be tailored to each woman's specific needs. Dr. Young has personally performed more than 500 fibroid surgeries and is trained in all the latest technology, including robotic surgery.
Treatment Options Include:
Medical management: hormonal & non-hormonal options
Hysteroscopic myomectomy: for submucosal fibroids (in the lining of the uterus)
Robotic, laparoscopic or abdominal myomectomy (using a mini-laparotomy -- 3-inch incision)
daVinci laparoscopic hysterectomy (outpatient procedure, 2 wk recovery)
