Hysterectomy & Uterine Problems

At Nickel Obstetrics and Gynecology, we strive to help the women in the communities of Tacoma, University Place, Gig Harbor, and Puyallup, and the surrounding area, to navigate through major life and health changes.


When a woman has questions about uterine problems, it is important for her to consult with a Physician. At Nickel Obstetrics & Gynecology, we strive to help consult and treat women in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, and Puyallup and the greater Tacoma area in navigating the best individual treatment plan for themselves.

There are many conditions that may affect the uterus. A few examples are: pain or heavy bleeding, cancer or growths and more. These conditions may be treated with medical therapy or various types of surgery including hysterectomy. A patient’s choice of treatment also takes into consideration personal factors like future fertility plans.

Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puyallup women have many questions regarding a hysterectomy and uterine problems. We encourage women to know the facts about these issues and to discuss openly with our team their questions and concerns and treatment options.

A Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. Because it is a major surgery some doctors suggest trying other treatments before a hysterectomy. Therefore, it is important to consult with your doctor and find out what other options are available and right for each patient. Hysterectomies may be preformed due to abnormal bleeding, uterine fibroids, cancers, pelvic support problems, and pelvic pain.

Many of our Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puyallup patients wonder if they will ever have to deal with a hysterectomy or uterine issues.

Dr. Adam Nickel and his team look forward to helping the women in the greater Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puyallup areas.
