Fibroid Treatment in Florida
For anyone struggling with debilitating pain, a diminished sex life, heavy menstrual bleeding, and low energy levels caused by uterine fibroids, relief is available in the form of a minimally-invasive procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). At USA Fibroid Centers, we offer this state-of-the-art fibroid treatment in Florida.
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that commonly appear in or on the uterus. They can appear as a single fibroid or in clusters. Fibroids range in size from that of a tiny seed to as large as a melon — with the largest ones weighing over twenty pounds. Although uterine fibroids are not cancerous, they have the potential to harm surrounding organs, negatively impact fertility, and cause painful symptoms.
Uterine fibroids come in four types, classified by location within the uterus:
The type, size, location, and number of fibroids present can affect which symptoms are experienced, as well as their severity. In some cases, no symptoms are present at all.
Possible uterine fibroid symptoms include:
- Heavy or prolonged menstruation
- Anemia-induced fatigue
- Pelvic or lower back pain
- Stomach bloating
- Frequent urination
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Severe cramps or pelvic pressure
Considering how common uterine fibroids are, there is a surprising lack of awareness about them. Did you know that about 33% of women during their childbearing years develop these benign tumors? By age 50, that number increases to as high as 80% –– yet only about half of women believe they are at risk. Although there is a range of available fibroid treatment in Florida, patients are often not informed of all their options. Many believe that hysterectomy, the complete surgical removal of the uterus, is the only treatment option –– and most have never even heard of Uterine Fibroid Embolization. Our experts aim to educate about this unique, effective, non-surgical treatment option that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, eliminate symptoms, and quickly get you back to living life to its fullest.

Here’s what you should know about UFE:
- UFE does not require general anaesthesia.
- It is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout.
- Treatment takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
- Before the procedure, your fibroids are located using a process called fibroid mapping via ultrasound.
- After numbing your thigh, one of our doctors makes a small incision, which serves as the entry point for a catheter.
- The catheter is threaded into the artery responsible for supplying blood flow to the fibroid.
- Your doctor releases small particles through the catheter to block this artery.
- Once blood flow is cut off, the fibroid begins to shrink and eventually wither away.
- Your incision requires only a small bandage, no stitches.
- You should return to normal, daily activities within 1-2 weeks.
- The uterus and ovaries remain intact.
- UFE is low-risk compared to hysterectomy and myomectomy.
