Overview

This book is about a clear, concise explanation of fibroids and their treatments. Fibroids are common benign tumors of the uterus that have been most frequently treated by hysterectomies. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, however, by removing the uterus, reproductive potential is eliminated. Most women do not wish to lose their reproductive organs whether or not they are interested in childbearing functioning.

The authors, Myron E. Moorehead, M.D. and Bryan A. Lewis, Ph.D. wrote the book to inform women who have been diagnosed with symptomatic fibroids that there are viable alternatives to hysterectomies for the successful treatment of fibroids. Physicians must respond to the strong and growing desire of many women to have a voice in their health care and they must be professionally obligated to communicate to their patients the option of treatment. Today, women want to be informed and active participants rather than passive subjects. No woman should be subjected to a hysterectomy because of fibroids unless she has been fully informed about the alternative and agrees to the decision.
