Fibroids affect approximately three out of four American women. Many women dismiss symptoms of fibroids (also known as myomas) including, heavy monthly periods, pain or pressure between the hip bones or back of the legs, a frequent need to urinate, constipation and bloating and an enlarged abdomen. Fibroid related symptoms cause women to lose an estimated 2-4 million days of productivity a year. African-American women, and those of any race with a family history, are more likely to develop fibroids than other women. It’s estimated that between 50% and 80% of African-American women will develop fibroids. Fibroids are the #1 reason for hysterectomy in this country— up to 75% of hysterectomies done are for this non-cancerous condition that can be treated without surgery!

Dr. John Lipman wows the crowd at Health Seminar in Atlanta!!!!

Over a hundred women gathered at West Side Community Church in SW Atlanta recently to hear UFE and Fibroid Expert Dr. John Lipman. Many of those attending the seminar expressed shock by the high number of hysterectomies performed in the US each year. Many of those hysterectomies were unnecessary. Dr. Lipman explained why UFE ( Uterine Fibroid Embolization) may be the answer!
