The Center, located in South Miami Hospital’s East Tower at S. Dixie Highway (US1) and SW 62nd Avenue, offers women a unique, multispecialty approach to diagnosing and treating uterine fibroids, all in one location.
The Fibroid Center’s team of specialists includes gynecologists, robotic surgeons, interventional radiologists, and fertility specialists. These doctors work together, along with women and their own doctors, to develop and implement a treatment plan that’s tailored to fit each woman’s individual needs.
Traditionally, limited treatment options meant that women and their doctors would either leave uterine fibroids alone or opt for a hysterectomy to treat these non-cancerous growths in the uterus. Today, less-invasive treatment options offered at the Fibroid Center can preserve a woman’s fertility, allowing her to have children if she chooses.
In addition, the Fibroid Center has a dedicated nurse practitioner and a coordinator to schedule tests and evaluations with the appropriate specialists in one comprehensive visit, saving women valuable time.
Rafael Perez, MD, is the medical director of the Fibroid Center.
“We’re thrilled to be open and provide women and their doctors a level of service and expertise that is not offered anywhere else,” Dr. Perez said.
The Fibroid Center accepts referrals from all physicians, and evaluations may be covered by insurance. To find out more or to schedule an evaluation, call South Miami Hospital’s Center for Women and Infants at 786-662-8585 and ask for the Fibroid Center or go online to www.CenteredOnMe.com.
