Find out why so many women turn to Dr. Fischer, with the Fibroid Institute Houston team, for non-surgical uterine fibroid treatment in the Houston area and all of South Texas.

“Knowledge is power. It is imperative that patients educate themselves about all available options and understand the advantages, disadvantages, and potential benefits/risks of each. As a physician, I believe one of my primary responsibilities, besides being a healer, is as an educator. Thankfully, many patients have more than one option and informed patients can confidently choose the option best for them.”
