A new treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) does not require an operation and has been shown to significantly reduce the size of fibroids.
WHAT IS UTERINE FIBROID EMBOLIZATION (UFE)?
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a less invasive procedure for the treatment of uterine fibroids.
The process typically lasts less than an hour and requires only a small incision into the radial (wrist) or femoral (groin) artery. The procedure is designed to block the blood supply to the uterine fibroids, causing them to shrink. As one of the alternatives to hysterectomy procedures, UFE is clinically proven to reduce the major symptoms of uterine fibroids.
Take some time to understand the UFE treatment procedure before you make your decision on your fibroid treatment option. Learn what to expect before, during and after the UFE treatment.
