Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) at Lawrence Hospital
Do you have uterine fibroids? Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) may provide an alternative to a hysterectomy. To learn more, call Lawrence Hospital in Westchester, New York.
Thousands of women have hysterectomies each year, and many of those are a result of uterine fibroids, benign tumors that often occur in the wall of the uterus. Fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, pain, and even infertility and miscarriage. Hysterectomy is a drastic measure, but what else can be done? Up until recently, there was little that medicine could offer outside of this irreversible surgery, but with modern technology and a procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), you may have another option. Call Lawrence Hospital Center to request a consultation and explore your options today.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure. After administering local anesthesia, an interventional radiologist, will guide a catheter into the artery at the top of the thigh using X-ray imaging. Microspheres that are made of biocompatible materials are introduced into the artery on both side of the fibroid tumor to block blood flow and starve it to death over time. In many cases, uterine fibroids shrink, thus ending many of the painful symptoms and side effects. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, Uterine Fibroid Embolization requires less time in the hospital and less time out of work compared to the lengthy recovery time of a full hysterectomy. If you’ve been suffering from uterine fibroid tumors and need treatment, call Lawrence Hospital today.
Common symptoms of fibroids of the uterus are:
- Heavy, prolonged monthly periods, sometimes with clots
Patients who are ideal for UFE include women who:
- Have symptomatic fibroids
A hysterectomy is not the only answer for fibroids and the pain they cause. Uterine Fibroid Embolization at Lawrence Hospital Center in Westchester County, may provide an alternative. Call today to learn more and to request a consultation.
