Fibroid Treatment in New Jersey
If you are struggling with uterine fibroids, you probably already know these benign growths can cause uncomfortable or even painful symptoms –– such as heavy bleeding, severe cramping, low energy levels, diminished sex life, and frequent urination. Women of New Jersey with uterine fibroids can now turn to our expert team at USA Fibroid Centers for a non-surgical treatment option. Our national network of medical centers specialize in Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) –– an effective, less-invasive treatment approach that preserves the uterus and provides quick relief to fibroid symptoms.
Uterine fibroids are a type of benign tumor that commonly appears in or on the uterine walls. Uterine fibroids are not cancerous, but they do have the potential to harm surrounding organs, negatively impact fertility, and cause unwanted symptoms. Fibroids sometimes grow as solitary nodules, but they can also develop as multiples in clusters. They range in size from that of a tiny seed to weighing over twenty pounds.
Uterine fibroids come in four types, classified by location within the uterus:
Symptoms of Fibroids may 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
The type, size, location, and number of fibroids present can impact which symptoms occur, as well as their severity. In some cases, symptoms do not present at all.

Over half of women don’t believe they are at risk of developing fibroids, but the reality is that up to 80% of women develop them by age 50. While there are several available treatment options, patients are often misinformed of what’s available. Many believe that hysterectomy –– the surgical removal of the uterus –– is the only method available. A hysterectomy is a major surgery that typically requires a recovery time of six to eight weeks.
At USA Fibroid Centers, our team of skilled physicians and specialists aim to educate about the unique, effective, non-surgical treatment option that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, eliminate painful and unpleasant symptoms, and quickly get you back to living life to its fullest. The standard recovery time from UFE procedures is only one to two weeks.

Non-surgical New Jersey uterine fibroids treatment
Our fibroid experts want to inform patients that Uterine Fibroid Embolization is an effective, outpatient fibroid treatment that requires a shorter recovery time than hysterectomy. Beyond that, you should understand that this is a well-established procedure that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At USA Fibroid Centers, UFE is performed by highly qualified, experienced interventional radiologists in state-of-the-art facilities. Our knowledgeable New Jersey fibroid specialists will guide you every step of the way through treatment, recovery, and beyond.
The entire treatment, lasting only 30 to 45 minutes, involves a simple procedure:
- Fibroids are located using an advanced ultrasound in a process called fibroid mapping.
- After numbing the area, our interventional radiologists make a small incision on the upper thigh.
- A tiny catheter is inserted into the incision and threaded into the artery supplying blood to the fibroid.
- The doctor releases small particles, which flow from the catheter and block the arteries.
- The blocked blood flow causes the fibroids to shrink and eventually die.
- UFE is performed under light sedation; general anaesthesia is not required.
- You’ll go home without any stitches, just a small bandage.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization can bring quick and significant relief for symptoms impacting your normal daily activities. To find out whether you are a candidate, we recommend scheduling an appointment to meet with one of our fibroid specialists. In New Jersey, fibroid treatments at USA Fibroid Centers are performed with unparalleled skill, cutting-edge technology, and the highest regard for our patients’ overall quality of life.
After Uterine Fibroid Embolization, patients often report:
- Shorter, lighter periods, lasting between 5-7 days
- Less constipation and bloating
- Decreased pain during intercourse
- No pelvic pressure or pain
- Normal frequency of urination
- No protruding belly or abdomen
- Buying and using less sanitary hygiene products
