ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2014) - Top Docs Radio host CW Hall interviewed Dr. John Lipman of Atlanta Interventional Institute and Dr. Carlos Alacron of Marietta OB-GYN on June 11, 2014. The specialists shared information about minimally-invasive procedures and the multi-specialty team approach they use to treat uterine fibroids.
According to the doctors, a third of women over the age of 30 suffer from uterine fibroids, which are benign tumors in the uterus. Of that group, 30% will suffer from physical pain, discomfort and overall annoyance. Dr. Alacron explained that most of his patients come to him with complaints about long, heavy menstrual cycles while showing symptoms that are often ignored.
"Many of these women do not realize that what they are doing is abnormal and their quality of life is worse than what it should be," said Dr. Lipman. It was previously thought that the only way to resolve these symptoms was to have major surgery like a hysterectomy, and so many patients suffered silently rather than undergoing a major procedure.
Specialists like Dr. Lipman and Dr. Alacron offer treatments that are minimally invasive, ranging from offering a healthier diet and exercise routine to finding ways to lower one's estrogen levels. When uterine fibroids become more serious, they suggest treatments such as Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE), a short procedure that essentially cuts off the blood flow to the tumors.
"These procedures have allowed us to experience a 90% success rate among patients," said Lipman.
