Dr. Yan Katsnelson leads the charge in the fight for women’s fibroid awareness after starting the Fibroids Fighters Foundation, an organization that seeks to advance the cause of women’s health and the safe and effective minimally invasive treatment of uterine fibroids.
Through Fibroids Fighters Foundation, Dr. Katsnelson aims to educate the public about the impact of fibroids on women across the world.
Uterine fibroids, also known as leiomyomas, are firm, compact tumors that are made up of smooth muscle cells and fibroid connective tissue, ranging from as small as a seed to as large as a melon. Women can have either one or multiple fibroids, and while many patients suffer debilitating symptoms, some do not experience symptoms at all.
Dr. Katsnelson says every 10 minutes, 12 hysterectomies are performed in the United States. However, up to nine of them did not meet the guidelines set for a hysterectomy – rendering those procedures medically unnecessary.
“Due to the fact that patients are not always made aware of other options, up to 60 percent of these surgeries are performed for the treatment of Uterine Fibroids. That’s where Fibroid Fighters Foundation comes into the picture. We empower women with information about symptoms and treatment options, so they have a voice in their care,” says Dr. Yan Katsnelson.
Apart from empowerment, Fibroids Fighters Foundation also advocates for research that advances fibroid treatment to discover earlier detection, better care, and outcomes. It also educates the public about the health, social and economic impact caused by uterine fibroids diseases.
Dr. Katsnelson takes pride in Fibroids Fighters’ approach to fostering a supportive relationship where informed women have proactive conversations with trusted healthcare providers on a regular basis. This is done by developing a collaborative partnership with fellow patients and physicians.
