Fibroid Treatment in Chicago
Uterine fibroids can cause abnormal bleeding, debilitating cramps, a diminished sex life, and low energy levels. These symptoms can often be addressed through a minimally-invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Although there are multiple fibroid treatments in Chicago available, including surgical procedures like hysterectomy, many individuals suffering from symptoms are misinformed of all their options. Our experts at USA Fibroid Centers offer a unique, effective, non-surgical treatment that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, eliminate symptoms, and quickly get you back to living life to its fullest.
Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that appear in or on the uterus. They can grow as solitary fibroids or in clusters, and range in size from that of a tiny seed to as large as a melon. Although they are not cancerous, fibroids can potentially harm surrounding organs and even impact fertility, along with causing painful and unpleasant symptoms. The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms present, as well as the severity.
Although symptoms range, they can 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
- Sometimes there are no symptoms present at all.

Non-surgical Chicago uterine fibroids treatment
At USA Fibroid Centers, our fibroid specialists want you to know there are less invasive treatments available. Uterine Fibroid Embolization, approved by the FDA, doesn’t require a hospital stay and will allow you to return to normal daily activities within just one to two weeks. In other words, there’s hope for those suffering from uterine fibroids to quickly rediscover a life free of symptoms in the Windy City.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by our highly qualified Chicago fibroid specialists in USA Fibroid Centers’ state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike some other Chicago fibroid removal specialists, we use fibroid mapping to locate your fibroids. This advanced ultrasound-guided treatment is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization takes between 30-45 minutes. Here’s what you can expect:
- During the procedure, embolic material is injected through a tiny catheter into the uterine artery to block blood flow to the fibroids.
- Once cut off from blood flow and nutrients, the fibroid(s) will wither away and eventually die.
- The injected material remains permanently in the blood vessels at the fibroid site, making it rare that the fibroid will return to its former, problematic size.
Afterwards, all you need is a bandage — no stitches — to cover a small incision in your upper thigh. Your ovaries and uterus remain intact. To learn whether you are a candidate for Uterine Fibroid Embolization, make an appointment to meet with one of our Chicago fibroid specialists. In Chicago, fibroid treatments at USA Fibroid Centers are performed with skill, cutting-edge technology, and the highest regard for your quality of life.
