Key Advantages

UFE is a safe treatment option and like other minimally invasive procedures has significant advantages over conventional open surgery.


The Benefits:

  • Preservation of the uterus.

  • Decrease in heavy menstrual bleeding from symptomatic fibroids.

  • Decrease in urinary dysfunction.

  • Virtually no blood loss.

  • Decrease in pelvic pain and/or pressure.

  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure.

  • Recovery period for a few hours post-procedure and a faster return to work when compared to having a hysterectomy.

  • Safe procedure that involves minimal risk and fewer complications after 30 Days when compared to having a hysterectomy (1).

  • Overall, significant improvement in patient’s physical and emotional well-being.

  • Covered by most insurance companies.

That’s why 90% of all women were satisfied at final follow-up after UFE.
