Unfortunately, there are no definitive explanations for what causes fibroids, but it is generally linked to two main factors which seem to affect the likelihood of their development. Genetics seems to play a direct role in many cases, while in others, hormones seem to be determinant. Whatever the case may be, once the tumors are present, their actual growth is controlled by hormonal fluctuations in both estrogen and progesterone.
At Coyle Institute, we want to relieve our patients of their fibroid pain and other related difficulties. As a team led by Dr. Michael Coyle, we specialize in diagnosing and treating fibroid uterus complications; and because we are a practice so dedicated to the women in our care, we maintain standards of excellence that have gained national recognition. In fact, as the nation’s first board-certified urogynecologist, Dr. Coyle holds a unique amount of expertise in both urological and gynecological issues; and combined with his superior surgical skills, patients at Coyle Institute can rest assured that they are being given the highest care available.
Dependent on the type, size, and location of the fibroids, treatment options vary for each patient; and at Coyle Institute, we offer the women in our care the most technologically and medically advanced options available. Before a treatment plan is considered, we will perform diagnostic testing to visually identify the tumors or conduct minimally invasive surgery to explore the uterus.
