Books:  Fibroids



The Hysterectomy Hoax

The Truth About Why Many Hysterectomies Are Unnecessary and How to Avoid Them

by Stanley West, M.D.

This is a great book for women with fibroids.  It is written in an understandable format outlining how myomectomies (the removal of just the fibroids) is a much better practice than removing the uterus along with fibroids.  He says no fibroid is too large as he has removed them the size of basketballs.  Today most physicians are not trained to perform myomectomies and may have to revert to a hysterectomy if the fibroids are beyond their skill level.  Dr. West practices in Manhattan (212) 628-2100
