WHAT IS UTERINE FIBROID EMBOLIZATION (UFE), AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Uterine fibroids are the most common benign (non-cancerous) tumors within the female reproductive system. A fibroid starts as a normal muscle cell in the uterus. For unknown reasons, this single cell grows and multiplies into a cluster of cells that form the fibroid. Fibroids are stimulated to grow by estrogen (a hormone produced by the ovaries) and blood flow. During menopause, the fibroid tumor often shrinks as the estrogen level naturally declines.
Uterine fibroid Embolization (UFE) can be described as a non-surgical treatment that treats fibroids. Compared to surgical options, UFE is associated with lower complications, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster recovery.
Long-term data indicate that 90-95 percent of women undergo UFE procedures. UFE procedures are satisfied with the results and substantial or complete symptomatic relief for several years after the procedure.
We specialize in uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a minimally invasive procedure used to treat uterine fibroids.
Most fibroids cause no symptoms. If you do experience symptoms, they may include:
• Heavy, prolonged menstrual periods
• Pelvic pain or pressure
• Frequent need to urinate
• An enlarged belly or feeling bloated
• Pain during intercourse
