To empower women to explore less invasive alternatives to a hysterectomy.
Interventional radiologist Dr Eisen Liang has worked closely with obstetrician gynaecologist Dr Bevan Brown for more than ten years. To meet the needs of women seeking alternatives to a hysterectomy, they cofounded Sydney Fibroid Clinic in 2013. Since then, they’ve accumulated extensive experience in applying uterine embolisation and minimally invasive surgical techniques to help women choose the right treatment option for themselves.
Throughout the years, they’ve successfully tackled many challenging cases where women have been told elsewhere that hysterectomy is the only solution. Their cross-specialty collaboration has allowed them to the push boundaries of what each specialist can do and to think outside their own box about possibilities. This collaborative approach allows Sydney Fibroid Clinic to help women who wish to explore all treatment options, by offering high-end, cutting-edge approaches to the effective treatment of fibroids and adenomyosis.
Our cross-specialty collaboration has also brought upon research opportunities. Dr Liang and Dr Brown co-authored the first case series about treating fibroids using embolisation in the peer-reviewed journal ANZJOG in 2012. They then co-authored the comprehensive 5,000-word article How To Treat Fibroids in Australian Doctor 2015 – a GP publication. In 2018, they published a landmark article on the effectiveness of embolisation for adenomyosis in ANZJOG, on a large case series, achieving the highest success rate. In 2019, they co-authored the 5,000-word article How To Treat Adenomyosis in Australian Doctor.
In 2019, they are looking at setting up a new clinic in Crows Nest. The location is more convenient for women who wish to reach Sydney Fibroid Clinic by train and the Metro – especially those who come to see us from interstate, regional NSW and other parts of Sydney. The architect-designed clinic is dedicated to providing a comfortable space for women to see us and have minor procedures. The waiting room will be a versatile space for small group seminar and information nights, for women interested in exploring less invasive treatment options.
