Fibroids are gone forever, along with the uterus

When it comes to treatment, Hysterectomy isn’t the only option anymore.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a safe, highly effective, minimally invasive vascular procedure that blocks blood flow to the uterine fibroids. This causes the fibroids to shrink or resolve, resulting in a life changing reduction in symptoms.

A minimally invasive vascular procedure is generally recommended to any woman who is symptomatic from her fibroids and who wishes to avoid surgical removal of the fibroids (myomectomy) or removal of the entire uterus (hysterectomy).

Minimally Invasive Vascular Procedure Advantages


Effective alternative to surgery & hormone treatment

Minimally invasive = no blood loss or surgery

Preservation of uterus, cervix, and ovaries

Rapid relief of symptoms

Faster return to daily life compared to surgery

Low rates of complications

Convenient same day outpatient procedure, no hospital stays

Safe for non-surgical candidates due to obesity, bleeding disorders, anemia, or religious reasons.
