About Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are tumors that typically noncancerous and develop within the uterus. Fibroids are firm growths that consist of smooth muscle cells and fibrous tissue. Uterine fibroids are classified by their size and location. Intramural fibroids grow within the muscular uterine wall. Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus.While the tumors are non-cancerous, they can grow to harm other organs if untreated. This condition affects nearly one-third of women of childbearing age.
While some women don’t experience fibroid symptoms, others experience:
- Heavy, prolonged menstruation
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Protruding abdomen or constipation
- Low back or pelvic pain
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty emptying the bladder
- Fatigue due to anemia
- Having to buy and use a significant amount of feminine hygiene products
- Constantly relying on over-the-counter pain medications to relieve pelvic pain or pressure
- Missing a large amount of work due to fibroid pain or bleeding
If you’re experiencing symptoms of uterine fibroids, you’re not alone. The specialists at our fibroids treatment center on White Plains Road in the Bronx, NY can help with your diagnosis using advanced ultrasound technology, and work with you to determine the best course of treatment.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) on White Plains Road, Bronx, NY
USA Fibroid Centers offers a minimally-invasive fibroid treatment for women in the Bronx who are looking for a minimally invasive solution. Our procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), is the gold standard of minimally invasive fibroid relief.
UFE shrinks fibroids half their size, resulting in significant symptom improvement. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no hospital stay, so you’ll be able to go home shortly after your appointment.
Before treatment, we’ll first make you comfortable by administering a light sedative and numbing your upper leg. A physician will then make a small incision and thread a catheter to the uterine artery that sends blood flow to the fibroid. The catheter will release small particles that block the fibroid’s blood flow, reducing its size and eliminating its impact on the surrounding organs. The process takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
