Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Uterine fibroids are an overgrowth of muscular and fibrous tissues, typically developing in the walls of the uterus. They are the most common tumor of the female reproductive tract. Though they are benign, they cause significant harm to nearby organs, as well as anemia due to heavy menstruation. USA Fibroid Centers uses the gold standard in treatment for fibroids called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). The latest in non-surgical, minimally invasive fibroid treatments, UFE is performed as an outpatient procedure, which means there’s no hospital stay, and you can recover at home. Our medical team first makes sure you are comfortable, and then our interventional radiologists give you a light sedative to help you relax. Using ultrasound as a guide throughout the procedure, our doctors are able to treat all the fibroids at once in approximately 30-45 minutes. Patients make a full recovery in one to two weeks.

How well does UFE work?

Uterine fibroid embolization reduces the size of the fibroids by about 50%. Eighty percent of women who received the UFE treatment report great improvement in their symptoms.
