We are continually enrolling patients in new research studies for the treatment of fibroids. To determine if you qualify to participate in a fibroid study, call 412-641-4435.
If you struggle with heavy periods, you may have uterine fibroids, a common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Nearly three out of four women will have uterine fibroids before the age of 50.
Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC is conducting a research study of an investigational device that targets fibroids and preserves the uterus through an incision-free, outpatient procedure. If you've been struggling with heavy periods and have finished having children, this study may be right for you.
If you are eligible to participate, you can be treated by a local women's health specialist and will receive all study-related care at no cost. To find out if you qualify, call 412-641-6681 or visit the Sonata™ Clinical Study website.
