How We Treat Your Uterine Fibroid
Fibroids are a non-cancerous tumor that form on the smooth muscle of the Uterus wall.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization, also called UFE, is an outpatient procedure done by a specially trained Interventional Radiologist. The goal of this procedure is to cut off the blood supply that feeds the fibroids. This will essentially starve them, causing the fibroids to shrink. As a result the pressure they put on your uterus and surrounding organs is alleviated. Most patients report a substantial increase in their quality of life.
Unlike a Hysterectomy, Uterine Fibroid Embolization does not remove your uterus, and is not major surgery. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, recovery time is much quicker and you can be out living your life in no time at all.
