Join UCLA professor Bruce McLucas, M.D. and women across the country for a free live one-hour webinar about fibroids and menopause, Saturday, July 24, 10 a.m. PST. Dr. McLucas, a leading fibroid expert, will discuss conflicting information surrounding fibroids and menopause and whether it is wise to wait until menopause hoping fibroids will shrink. A highlight of the webinar will be an actual patient discussing her struggle with fibroids and how she conquered them.
In addition, participants can ask questions about fertility, various treatments including non-surgical embolization and how to decrease fibroid symptoms.
Dr. McLucas is a Los Angeles-based OB-GYN who practices at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. One of the pioneers in developing uterine artery embolization, Doctor McLucas has had a career-long interest in minimally invasive therapy, serving as president and charter member of the Society for Minimally Invasive Therapy. Dr. McLucas founded the Los Angeles-based Fibroid Treatment Collective 12 years ago, and his team performed the first embolization in the United States at UCLA in 1994.
