Dr. Pierre Johnson aka The Fibroid Slayer is a minimally invasive gynecologic guru born and raised on the south side of Chicago.

He has vowed to dedicate his life to fighting to end healthcare disparities. Through extensive training and vast experience, Dr. Johnson has developed the niche to surgically manage the most difficult gynecologic cases. He professes that no fibroid is too big to manage, and every woman should have the option to preserve her uterus.
