Hello, I'm doctor Gillian Johnson As a former fibroids sufferer what I want to tell you is You don't have to suffer. Fibroids and fibroids symptoms can be cured WITHOUT surgery or a hysterectomy. I had two uterine fibroids, and you may know how painful is. After several unsuccessful medications, my gynecologist wanted me to undergo surgery. But another doctor suggested me to follow a new holisticdrugfree method, accessible on the web. In just 5 weeks fibroids shrunk drastically. No more pain, no more irregular periods, no more bladder pressure. The following ultrasounds shown that both of these fibroid were completely gone.
Understanding fibroids and abnormal uterine bleeding
Gtgt Sawson AsAsanie, M.D., MPH My name is Sawson AsAsanie, and I'm the director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Program at the University of Michigan. Today we're going to be talking about abnormal uterine bleeding, which is a very common condition that affects many women in their reproductive years. Abnormal bleeding is any type of bleeding that is irregular. That could be bleeding in between menstrual cycles, bleeding that is heavier than usual during menstrual cycles, bleeding after intercourse, or even bleeding after someone's gone through menopause. There are many different causes of abnormal bleeding, and some might be due.
To hormonal changes, some might be due to structural abnormalities such as lesions within the uterus, and others might be due to systemic medical conditions. When a woman has a menstrual cycle that occurs greater than 35 days from start to start, less than 21 days from start to start, or bleeding in between their menses, after intercourse, or after menopause, these are all indications that something might be abnormal, and she should be examined by her physician. Uterine fibroids are a common cause of abnormal bleeding, and the lifetime risk.
Of developing uterine fibroids is approximately 70 to 80 percent. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus and can cause many symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, which can be either heavy or irregular, pelvic pain, andor pelvic pressure related to the large size of fibroids. However, not all women with uterine fibroids have symptoms, and the decision to proceed with treatment for uterine fibroids really depends on whether or not those symptoms are bothersome. If you think that your bleeding symptoms are abnormal or bothersome, or if you suspect that you might have uterine fibroids, you should talk to your doctor.
Patient Story Robotic Uterine Fibroid Embolization with Magellan
Ivana I love to walk. It really feels great. I'm a teacher. Sometimes I work with the preschoolers or first grade, and you want to kind of be on their level, when you're sitting down. So I wasn't able to sit down a lot of times. And I noticed a lot of bloating. My body just wasn't functioning the way that it normally was. Last year the doctor noticed that I had fibroids that were the size of lemons. I was in pain a lot. I couldn't wear anything that buttoned. It literally looked like I was nine months pregnant. I was embarrassed. I sought.
Medical advice from my OBGYN about other options other than a hysterectomy. And he referred me to Dr. Bagla. Dr. Bagla Ivana, when she sought us out to have uterine fibroid embolization and it was performed robotically, she was ecstatic and knew that she was undergoing a procedure that would offer her a chance to really change her life. With traditional surgery, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy, there is an open incision, and most women are not ecstatic about having a large incision in the lower part of their abdomen, the scar, the potential.
For bleeding, or infections. With fibroid embolization as a whole, that procedure can be performed minimally invasively on an outpatient basis sometimes, and just through a simple needle hole. What's unique about the Magellan System is its ability to get to both right and left uterine artery, which is critical for the procedure. It offers support for our microcatheter to then deliver the embolic material right into the correct place within the uterus. Ivana The puncture that he made with the Magellan Robotics System, literally it was a little bandaid. And I remember, I had trouble finding where the incision was. Now I'm breathing.
Dr. Paul MacKoul MD Makes Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal Possible Helenes Story
I have been suffering from fibroids and endometriosis for over 20 years, and I had very intense pain, back problems, lower stomach problems, headaches from being so anemic. And it controlled my life. I think my first procedure was probably '95. And so since '95, I've been going through different procedures with different doctors, and nothing worked. I would do the surgery, and I would be fine for a month or two. And then I would say the longest I've ever been OK was for three months, and then bam here it comes again.
One of the doctors that I went into, he told me that the best advice that he could give me was to just go ahead and have a hysterectomy. And then he started laughing and said that that was his best advice for the day. And then I told him, thanks, but no thanks. And I walked out. I had a cyst rupture on my right ovary. And I ended up in the emergency room where I had to do surgeries to remove my appendix, because it kind of fused my appendix and my fallopian tube together.
After I got out of that surgery, my GYN at the time, she told me, I want you to go and see Dr. MacKoul. She said, this is the only doctor the only doctor that I want you to see. I went in to see Dr. MacKoul. He was pleasant, and he took the time out to explain to me what was going on and do all his little drawings. Dr. MacKoul recommended a LAAM myomectomy, because I wanted to retain my uterus. He told me if I had any questions just to call him,.
And he would explain anything that I didn't quite understand. Then he actually came and sat with me before I actually was taken in for the surgery. And he went over again what we're going to be doing, and then he told my family to just trust him. I was in good hands. I did not come across a specialist until I actually met Dr. MacKoul. Not only did he tell me what my problem was, not only did he tell me what mistakes had been done with my surgeries prior.
That caused my endometriosis to get worse but he fixed the problem. I haven't had any pain no back problems, no stomach problems, no headaches. I finally decided it was time for me to do what I wanted to do. Three months later, my dad had asked me, would I go with him to Africa. And I told him, sure, and so we went to Africa for a month. This was something that I would not have done prior to having the surgery. The energy that I didn't feel I had before to be able to do.
My master's, now I'm working on my master's. I have the energy where I'm doing my master's, working, and also helping my niece with her homework, and now having to travel with her to go to her different events. I wish I had met Dr. MacKoul before. I wish I had heard about him before I went through all those other procedures. But looking back, with everything that I went through, I'm always telling other people about Dr. MacKoul. He is a true specialist. He is the only specialist I would recommend.

My mama was a righteous woman. She was of the opinion that you do well by people and good for people at every turn can. The way should start a conversation is Rami what good have you done for people today And so I think that had a deep influence on me. My job is my life. When I'm here in town I keep my pager on 247 and I try to deliver all of my patients. That's the kind of commitment that I would want from my doctor and that's the kind of commitment.
That I want to give to my patients. I think there's nothing really truly more empowering then watching a woman take control over her birth experience or her health care in general. I think that's what really shows what women are made of. I wanna be the person that when they remember their birth that they think you know what, there was this really great person that helped me get to where I wanted to be and that she was there and never had to worry that I was in it alone.

You know! So I really get excited when we would bring back their babies or when they just peek their head into visit, because it is, its a friendship and a relationship that we established To be able to go through life truly with the job that you love is one of the greatest accomplishments you can have.

da Vinci robotic gynecologic surgery for fibroids
Ashley Two of my aunts had fibroids and they just took out their uterus. So they don't have any children. Dr. Saffer Ashley has very large fibroids. It's not a cancer. So it's just an abnormal growth that just keeps on growing. If Ashley one day wants to get pregnant the only real option is removing the fibroids but not removing the uterus. Nurse You'll get prepped and ready to go to surgery. Dr. Saffer She's 20 and it's very unusual to see fibroids this big, early on in life. Louella I'm Louella. I'm Ashley's mom.
Nurse Her mom Okay. Ashley I'm Alexis, her sister. Nurse Okay very good. Dr. Saffer This is a da Vinci SI System. The first component is the arms of the robot maneuver very similarly to a human hand with perfect wrist movements. The second component is the actual surgical console. This manipulates the instruments on the robotic arms. When I put my head where the headpiece is, I'm immersed in a 3D field, of fantastic resolution. Fibroids can start to twist on themselves. And that can cause excruciating pain. Ashley It feels like something is like eating me from the inside out. My stomach rises up.
And it stiffens. I'm going to kill you. Dr. Saffer There are ways of removing fibroids, the conventional way is where you make a large incision and take them out. How you doing Nurse Hello. How are you Dr. Saffer With Ashley's surgery there's no way we could do this minimally invasively if it wasn't for the robotic system. I'm going to go through a couple of things, as to what's going to happen this morning. We'll make little incisions in your tummy, and if we can safely take the fibroids out robotically, then that's what we'll do.
Ashley Mmhmm. Okay. Male I'll kind of hold your hand while things are happening. Ashley Yeah. Colleen What seems very routine to us on a daytoday basis is not routine to our patients. They're in a world that's unfamiliar to them. Nurse Just kind of nervous Ashley Yeah. Nurse That's alright. Colleen We understand their fear. We're here to alleviate those fears. Nurse Even nurses get nervous. I had surgery a couple months ago, they kept saying are you nervous No, no, no, no, no, no. But when it got right down to the point it was yes,.
I was nervous. Colleen All of us just as human beings want to know what to expect. Nurse Hugs and smooches and see you later. You're in great hands. Dr. Saffer It's the only robotic system that's dedicated to women's surgery in San Diego County. Nurse Did you meet Sophia the robot Dr. Saffer She'll be out of the hospital the next day. Recovery instead of being six weeks, tends to be 10 days. We attach the robotic arms to the patient. And then I'm right next to her, at the console during the surgery.
Nurse Wow. Dr. Saffer The last thing that you need to do is to get that fibroid tissue out of the abdomen. And we use something called a morcelator. It is sucking the fibroid out. You take it out through a small incision in the abdomen. And close up the middle incisions and we're done. The biggest hole is this one, and it's about a centimeter. How you doing Everything went very, very well. Louella Uhhuh. Dr. Saffer The good news is we did it all robotically, as we planned. She has a beautiful.
New Minimally Invasive Options for Gynecologic Surgery at North Shore Medical Center NSMC
This is the biggest change I've seen in my practice in 20 years its what I am most excited about since I've come out of residency a patient may come and see me because she's got heavy bleeding and she was found to have a fibroid uterus as it turns out she's been dealing with this for about three years because her mother had the same thing and she had surgery using a traditional laparotomy big incision she's in the hospital for a week and didn't feel well again for eight weeks what I can now tell this patient is.
Let me bring you to the hospital I can use small incisions you can go home the same day i'll have you driving in three days and you can be back to work in two weeks you know we've been doing this for three years and we still say it's a a great operations really sweet operation because it really allows the patient a comfort level that they wouldn't have otherwise if they had to have a major operation or major incision the procedures would be as follows office tubal sterilization.
Office endometrial ablations for heavy bleeding then transitioning to the hospital we do laproscopic supracervical hysterectomies total laparoscopic hysterectomies we can combine those procedures with removal of the tubes and ovaries as well we can do laparoscopy for pelvic pain and endometriosis laparoscopy for removal the ovaries and tubes if we need to for history of breast cancer or for history of ovarian cycsts an example the recent patient is a patient of mine who had a fibroid uterus and the fibroid itself was the size of a grapefruit 10 centimeters.
She had not only heavy bleeding from this but pelvic pain and we were able to see her get her in to the hospital did a hysterectomy the specimen itself weighed 1.5 pounds she was able to go home the following day and she's back at work as we speak which is two and a half weeks after the procedure this is someone who's been living with pain for three to four years shoot me in the eye and say this is so easy how could I possibly have waited for so long.
Stevens Point Pregnancy Danielle, Nick Addelyn Testimonial Kaldas Center
So Addelyn is about eight weeks old and she's just the happiest little baby there is and she's learning to smile right now To see her wake up in the middle of the night and crack a big smile. it is really makes everything worthwhile I was a little nervous right off the bat about to a male doctor and stuff and pregnancy, how is a guy going to relate and that kind of thing The very first time I met with him and just talking to him he just his personality and everything made you feel like.
It's gonna be okay we got options and he realized what it was I wanted and that he's going to help me through it. commerce your honor trial and error and then month a binding up for unity in Kerala pregnancy in man at the very end we end up having a csection some did surgery as well you and the really exciting beauty on that we're praying at Christmas morning we know it unique situation the placenta was in the front on my stomach so I didn't feel her move pretty much the entire nine months.
So going through pregnancy was very nervewracking I was constantly like is she okay is there something wrong and I would call up Doctor Kaldas us on a routine basis he'd be like why don't you just come on and we'll turn the monitor on take a look in she's totally fine I mean not a big deal and he made you feel like it wasn't a big deal like I wasn't bothering anyone by constantly having these little scares and that kind of thing. I really think he takes the time to get to know you.
Personally Like, when you go into appointments he knows exactly who you are he knows where you've been and where you've come through the biggest thing I remember about the csection is after he closed up and he is leaving the room he looked at me he goes how many years was this as so it just really gave me the feeling of you know he was personally involved with us. Seeing her born you know, was the best thing in the world. It was amazing. 9208862299 Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery Pregnancy, S.C. kaldascenter.
