FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with the Fibroid Education Center, Dr. Suzanne LeBlang, an industry leader treating uterine fibroids, and Dr. Stern, an award-winning OB/GYN, will conduct two free seminars providing guidance to women regarding relieving uterine fibroid pain, including new FDA-approved treatment option Curawave (MRgFUS), at the Mizner Cultural Arts Center in Boca Raton, Florida, on June 12 at 3:00pm and 6:00pm.
One in four women will suffer from uterine fibroid symptoms, and most are told to watch, wait, and tolerate symptoms. Ten million women in America currently experience fibroids, and over 250,000 women annually undergo a hysterectomy in response to fibroids. Dr. LeBlang and Dr. Stern have observed many patients do not fully understand the nature of fibroids or the treatment options available.
New advances in medical research have led to Curawave (MRgFUS), an FDA-approved non-invasive, outpatient procedure that treats uterine fibroids and relieves common symptoms, including pain, bloating, and bleeding. Prior to this, many doctors have instructed women to suffer through uterine fibroid pain or undergo an invasive hysterectomy instead. With Curawave, women complete the treatment in only a few hours and walk out the same day without any required recovery period. This treatment is available at prestigious medical centers around the United States, including University MRI in Boca Raton, the only Florida site offering the procedure.
Attendees will receive quality education on uterine fibroids, including a comprehensive condition description, symptoms, treatment options, and detail on Curawave (MRgFUS). Registration for the seminar is free, open to the public, and available both online at http://www.fibroidseminar.com and by phone at (888) 44-WOMEN. The event is ideal for women currently suffering from uterine fibroids and who are interested in learning more about the condition and the treatment options available to them.
Dr. LeBlang has heard many patients say, "Watching and waiting with uterine fibroids is wrecking my life." Some patients report being thrown to the floor in bouts of pain. Others have irregular heavy bleeding or leak urine at embarrassing moments. Dr. LeBlang and Dr. Stern are confident that as women with uterine fibroids learn more about their options for overcoming fibroids, there will be less watching and waiting. Women will act to adopt the best therapy and remove fibroids before they grow to a level that requires the most invasive methods.
The Fibroid Education Center (http://www.fibroideducation.com) is a social health company serving women who struggle with symptomatic uterine fibroids. We encourage women to take their health into their own hands by providing information to assess treatment choices.
