Welcome Back to Fibroid Second Opinion

Sadly, my wife Rachel became ill in February 2022 and passed away in July, 2022.  Very sad for me and our three sons.  We were married for 52 years, so there is a big hole in my life and heart.

I went on family medical leave in February and then, when it was not clear what was going to happen, I retired from clinical practice July 1st, 2022.   I continue to teach gynecology to UCSD residents, but I no longer go to the operating room.

Many women have told me that this website was very helpful to them when dealing with fibroid issues.  In the past year, the website crashed for technical reasons and is now up and running again.  I plan to continue the website and will make an ongoing effort to update the information.  The information is based on clinical studies and there are no commercial interests or biases.

I’ve trained a number of gynecologists in both the technical surgical procedures and the value of uterine (and ovarian) preservation.  Dr. Shira Varon and Dr. Charlotte Pickett at UCSD and Dr. Valentina Triana-Rodriguez and Dr. Brianne Romeroso at UCLA are skilled surgeons and interested in taking care of women with fibroids.  In addition, Dr. Pickett is a fellowship-trained minimally-invasive gynecologic surgeon (MIGS) with expertise in treating women with endometriosis as well as women with uterine fibroids.  I will invite them to participate in the website with their clinical expertise in their areas of interest.

I hope you find this website helpful.

And, as always, I wish you good health,

Bill Parker, MD
