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.

Using ultrasound as a guide throughout the procedure, our doctors are able to treat all the fibroids at once in approximately 30-45 minutes
