Fibroid Treatment in Maryland
For individuals grappling with significant pain, reduced sexual pleasure, heavy menstrual bleeding, and low energy levels due to uterine fibroids, there’s a minimally invasive solution called uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). We’re delighted to offer this cutting-edge fibroid treatment at USA Fibroid Centers in Maryland.
About Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are non-malignant tumors that often develop in or on the uterus, individually or in groups. Their sizes vary significantly, and although not cancerous, they can negatively impact neighboring organs, fertility, and cause painful symptoms.
Uterine fibroids are classified into four primary types based on their location in the uterus:
- Intramural fibroids
- Subserosal fibroids
- Pedunculated fibroids
- Submucosal fibroids
The type, size, and location of fibroids can influence the severity of the symptoms, with some individuals exhibiting no symptoms at all. Common symptoms include heavy menstruation, anemia-induced fatigue, pelvic or lower back pain, constipation, abdominal bloating, frequent urination, pain during sexual activity, and intense cramps or pelvic pressure.
The UFE Procedure in Maryland
At USA Fibroid Centers in Maryland, our mission is to educate patients about UFE as an effective, non-surgical treatment option. UFE can preserve the uterus and ovaries, alleviate symptoms, and quickly improve your quality of life.
UFE is performed under light sedation, ensuring patients’ comfort throughout the 30-45 minute procedure. With minimal recovery time needed, patients can typically resume their regular activities within 1-2 weeks while enjoying significant symptom relief.
Benefits of UFE
After undergoing UFE, patients often report improvements such as shorter, lighter menstrual periods, reduced constipation and bloating, decreased pain during intercourse, relief from pelvic pressure or pain, regular urination frequency, a non-protruding abdomen, and less reliance on feminine hygiene products and pain medications.
