What are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are the most common tumor of the female reproductive tract.
Although non-cancerous, they cause significant harm to nearby organs as well as
anemia due to heavy menstrual bleeding. These benign tumors are also known as
uterine myomas or leiomyomas. Several factors may influence their formation,
such as hormones and genetics. It is estimated that 8-33% women develop
fibroids during their child bearing years. Common symptoms of fibroids
are heavy, prolonged and painful menstrual periods, lower back pain, pelvic
pressure and pain during intercourse. Patients with fibroids also suffer from
poor sleep due to frequent urination from fibroid pressure on the
urinary bladder. Heavy menstruation can cause anemia with fatigue and general
lack of energy. These symptoms often impact a woman’s social life, work, family
interactions, sex life and even lead to depression and low self-confidence.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Uterine fibroids are an overgrowth of muscular and fibrous tissues, typically
developing in the walls of the uterus. They are the most common tumor of the
female reproductive tract. Though they are benign, they cause significant harm to
nearby organs, as well as anemia due to heavy menstruation. USA Fibroid Centers
uses the gold standard in treatment for fibroids called Uterine Fibroid
Embolization (UFE). The latest in non-surgical, minimally invasive fibroid
treatments, UFE is performed as an outpatient procedure, which means there’s
no hospital stay, and you can recover at home. Our medical team first makes sure
you are comfortable, and then our interventional radiologists give you a light
sedative to help you relax. Using ultrasound as a guide throughout the procedure,
our doctors are able to treat all the fibroids at once in approximately 30-45
minutes. Patients make a full recovery in one to two weeks.
