Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a proven, non-surgical alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy for the treatment of fibroids. A UFE procedure takes about one hour to complete, provides symptom control comparable to surgery, and has a significantly shorter recovery time as little as one week. Many women are unaware of less invasive fibroid treatment options, such as UFE, and continue to accept hysterectomy as the treatment of choice. Hysterectomy involves surgical removal of the uterus, and many times the ovaries, and can have a profound impact on a woman’s life.
