Fibroid Treatment in Massachusetts
If you are struggling with debilitating pain, a diminished sex life, heavy menstrual bleeding, or low energy levels caused by uterine fibroids, you may be relieved to hear that there’s a nonsurgical procedure available called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). USA Fibroid Centers offers this state-of-the-art fibroid treatment in Massachusetts.
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that commonly develop within the uterus. They may appear as a single fibroid, or as multiple fibroids 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 impact surrounding organs, negatively affect fertility, and cause painful symptoms.
There are four types of uterine fibroids, which are classified by their location within the uterus:
The type, size, location, and number of fibroids present can affect which symptoms present, as well as the severity. In some cases, there can be no symptoms at all.
Possible uterine fibroid symptoms include:
- Heavy or prolonged menstruation
- Anemia-induced fatigue
- Lower back or leg pain
- Protruding abdomen or belly
- Frequent urination
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Severe cramps or pelvic pressure
- Bleeding between periods

About 33% of women during their childbearing years develop these benign tumors, and by age 50, that number increases to as high as 80%. Despite the prevalence of uterine fibroids, only about half of women believe they are at risk. Although there is a range of available fibroid treatment in Massachusetts, 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. Our experts at USA Fibroid Centers aim to educate on the 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.

Non-surgical Massachusetts uterine fibroids treatment
At USA Fibroid Centers, our Fibroid Specialists in Massachusetts want you to know that there are less invasive, non-surgical treatments available.
We are trusted experts for Massachusetts fibroid treatment. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by our highly qualified fibroid specialists in state-of-the-art facilities. Our knowledgeable staff and experienced interventional radiologists will guide you every step of the way through treatment, recovery, and beyond.
The UFE procedure takes between 30 to 45 minutes. It does not require general anesthesia and is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout. Here’s what you need to know:
- 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 die.
- Your incision requires no stitches, just a small bandage.
- You should be able to return to your normal, daily activities within one to two weeks.
- Your ovaries and uterus remain intact.
- This treatment is low-risk compared to hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures.
