About Us: The content for this website was developed by researchers at Boston University in conjunction with the Fibroid Center at Boston Medical Center. Software was engineered by Aiden Taghinia. This website aims to help people without advanced understanding of medicine or medical terminology understand the options for management of fibroids. We developed this website because there are currently few resources available to help patients in this area. This website does not provide medical advice. For a complete evaluation, please see your healthcare provider. This website will be updated as new treatment options become available. Please email us at fibroidcenter@bmc.org for more information.
