Get Freedom from Fibroids

They Grow

“How big will they get?” You might wonder how to regain control. As they grow, anxiety escalates. You check where the restrooms are. Super-pads, tampons, and sometimes both fill your purse. How do you get freedom?

Every day, we help patients in Cincinnati, OH get freedom from fibroids.

There are Other Options

For those who feel:

  • you’ve lost control
  • you want more treatment options
  • you don’t want a big incision
  • you don’t want a hospital stay

What's the Difference?

At TriHealth Advanced Gynecologic Surgery, we offer all women multiple options for fibroids, from medical therapies to minor procedures to major surgery. We make sure you’re included in decision-making and regain a sense of control.

We avoid traditional open surgery. Most patients avoid laparotomy. Drs. Namaky & Patel routinely use laparoscopic and robotic surgery to get you home the same day. Even for large fibroids, same day myomectomy and hysterectomy are possible. The typical recovery time is just 2 weeks.

The Right Expertise

We have advanced fellowship training in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Our team is experienced in laparoscopic and robotic myomectomy, laparoscopic control of blood supply and laparoscopic suturing; our advanced extraction techniques help us avoid traditional open surgery even for large fibroids, giving you the chance to wake up without a large incision.

Take the first step toward getting your life back. Call (513) 862-1888 to book an appointment with Drs. Namaky & Patel today.

What are Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are tumors that grow in a woman’s uterus. They are common and usually benign. As many as one in five women may have fibroids during their childbearing years. Half of all women have fibroids by age 50.

Fibroids can be so tiny that you need a microscope to see them. They can also grow very large. They may fill the entire uterus and may weigh several pounds or kilograms. Although it is possible for just one fibroid to develop, most often there is more than one.

What are Common Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids?

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Heavy bleeding during your period, sometimes with blood clots
  • Periods that may last longer than normal
  • Needing to urinate more often
  • Pelvic cramping or pain with periods
  • Feeling fullness or pressure in your lower belly
  • Pain during intercourse

Often, you can have fibroids and not have any symptoms. Your health care provider may find them during a physical exam or other test. Fibroids often shrink and cause no symptoms in women who have gone through menopause. A recent study also showed that some small fibroids shrink in premenopausal women.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
