At UCLA we provide a unique, comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of uterine fibroids. For women with fibroids, we are dedicated to providing sophisticated, individualized and collaborative care by an expert team of specialists led by gynecologists and radiologists.
We evaluate each woman’s unique situation, realizing that no single treatment option is best. Together we will discuss treatment options, including watchful waiting, medical therapy and surgery, to create a treatment plan that meets each woman’s immediate medical goals and promotes long-term health.

In partnership with our patients and taking into consideration fibroid size, number, location and severity, our multidisciplinary team of radiologists and gynecologists tailor treatments to individual women’s needs.
MR Guided Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), an innovative new outpatient technique, uses MRI to monitor targeted fibroids and focused ultrasound to ablate them. It is the only non-surgical technique suitable for women wishing to preserve or enhance fertility. UCLA is the only center in the greater Los Angeles region currently offering this therapy.
