USA Fibroid Centers LocationsUterine fibroids are benign growths that can cause many uncomfortable or even painful side effects. Women throughout the nation are turning to USA Fibroid Centers for a non-surgical treatment option for fibroids. When you visit one of our outpatient medical centers, you can learn about the cutting-edge technique called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Many gynecologists focus on surgical solutions for uterine fibroids, such as hysterectomy. Not only is this surgery often medically unnecessary, but it also involves a lengthy recovery process; that’s time many women can’t afford. We hope to raise awareness regarding UFE, so that women throughout the U.S. are able to choose another option in the treatment of uterine fibroids that fits their individual needs. No matter which of our national network of USA Fibroid Centers you choose, you’ll be able to meet one-on-one with one of our fibroid specialists. They’ll take the time to understand your unique needs and explain all treatment options available to you. Living free from the uncomfortable symptoms of uterine fibroids is possible, so contact a USA Fibroid Centers near you to learn more.
Non-Invasive Uterine Fibroid Treatment Across the USYou don’t have to just deal with the symptoms of a uterine fibroid, and fibroid surgeries like myomectomy or hysterectomy are not the only options available if you wish to seek treatment. USA Fibroid Centers offers an extensive number of locations throughout the U.S. that specialize in an alternative, minimally invasive approach. The FDA has approved UFE in the treatment of uterine fibroids. Our interventional radiologists perform the procedure at all of our outpatient facilities, as it requires no hospitalization; meaning you can go home right after your treatment is complete. Another benefit, is that there are no stitches — just a bandage that covers the incision. After two to seven days, you should feel up to resuming your normal activities once again. During the 30 to 45 minute procedure, your doctor will be able to provide you with effective treatment solution for your uterine fibroids through a number of steps:
- First, we locate fibroids using advanced ultrasound technology. The process is called fibroid mapping.
- The doctor numbs the upper thigh and makes a small incision.
- A catheter is inserted through this incision and then threaded into an artery that’s supplying blood to the fibroids.
- Tiny particles are released through the catheter, which blocks the artery’s blood flow.
- This decreased blood flow causes the fibroids to shrink.
- As the fibroid shrinks and dies, symptoms begin to decrease over the next few weeks.
