As with many parts of medicine guidelines are constantly being updated across a variety of specialties. The American Academy of Neurology recently released new guidance on how and when to use botulinum toxin in patient care.
The field of obstetrics and gynecology is constantly moving forward including new treatments for conditions like fibroids as well as work on new surgical treatments like uterine transplants. All these changes can present a wide range of challenges for health care professionals who work in this area of medicine.
As fibroids become a more common problem facing doctors and patients new treatment methods are being developed to address it. From new medications to various procedures these can allow patients to get the care they needed without affecting their quality of life as much as previous choices may have.
Once a patient is diagnosed with fibroids it is up to the doctor to determine the best course of treatment. Even as more treatment options are being developed there are already some solid choices depending on the age of the patient and other factors.
