How Do You Treat Fibroids?

There are several factors that will determine which is the best course of treatment for you, including your age, your risk factors, how bad your symptoms are, and whether or not you plan to get pregnant in the future.

A discussion with your doctor will help you decide whether uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) or another treatment is best for you.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Description

Minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure blocks the blood flow to fibroid tumors, causing them to shrink. Performed by an interventional radiologist.

Advantages

No general anesthesia required. Very small incision. Typical recovery less than one week. Less risk of major complications than surgical procedures. A single treatment is about 90% effective.

Disadvantages

Post-procedural pain that generally dissipates in a few days. Complications may include mild fatigue or low-grade fever.
