For Healthcare Professionals

How can I refer my patients to COMPARE-UF?
At this time, patients enrolling in COMPARE-UF must have their uterine fibroid treatment procedure performed at one of the enrolling sites. If you would like to refer a patient, please email

Will my patient continue to be seen my practice?
Yes, though all treatment procedures must be performed at an enrolling site. All follow-up may be completed online by the patient (with an annual visit to the enrolling site).

I'm interested in using the COMPARE-UF data collection forms. Whom should I contact for permission?
Email the COMPARE-UF team at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). Please let us know your name, institution, why you are interested in using the forms, and the potential research purposes.

Can my institution become a clinical site for COMPARE-UF, or can I participate in another way?
Please complete our information form and let us know that you’re interested. Opportunities may include advising on recruitment and follow-up efforts for COMPARE-UF, contributing ideas for expanding our registry, or suggesting potential partnerships for future research.
