Fibroids Are a Pain. Our Experts Can Help.

At the Center for the Advanced Treatment and Research (CATeR) of Uterine Fibroids, we don’t subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach to fibroid treatment. We’ll build a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and designed to improve your quality of life. Our main goal is to support you in managing your fibroids, so your fibroids don’t manage you.

Our team of experts at the University of Chicago Medicine have a history of exceptional outcomes — even for fibroids that are the most challenging to remove, shrink or treat. We work with you to discuss all your treatment options and will help champion the option that allows you to achieve your lifestyle goals.

Choosing the right treatment option is a personal decision. We’ll discuss your short-term and long-term health goals and help you understand the benefits and risks as you consider your options.
