Uterine Fibroid Embolization in the Bronx

Uterine fibroids are one of the most common health issues that impact the female reproductive system. It’s estimated that as many as one in four women of reproductive age have fibroids. 

While it’s possible to have fibroids without noticeable symptoms, many women experience distressing symptoms that intensify over time as the fibroids grow. However, some patients might put off treatment because they aren’t aware of the non-surgical treatment options available to them. 

At USA Fibroid Centers on White Plains Rd. in the Bronx, NY, our doctors specialize in treating fibroids with uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), also known as uterine artery embolization or UAE. 

UFE is a minimally invasive procedure that shrinks the fibroids. It’s highly effective at providing lasting relief from fibroid symptoms and is one of the best options for women interested in a treatment that won’t impact their fertility or require an overnight hospital stay. 

Common Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that develop in uterine tissue.

There are different types of fibroids. Fibroids that grow within the muscular uterine wall or the inner lining of the uterus can impact your menstrual cycle and cause heavy bleeding, spotting between periods, and painful intercourse. Some can impact your fertility. 

Fibroids that grow on the outside of the uterus can put pressure on other organs, causing issues like pain and frequent urination. 

Whether you notice symptoms or not depends on the size, number, and location of your fibroids. Overall, about one-quarter of women with fibroids have symptoms that need to be treated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids that every woman should be aware of:

  • Heavy menstruation that might last beyond your period
  • Severe menstrual cramps
  • Cramping or pelvic pain with no period
  • Lower back pain
  • Enlarged abdomen
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue due to anemia

If you’re experiencing symptoms of uterine fibroids, it’s important to see a doctor who has experience diagnosing and treating fibroids. While the vast majority of fibroid tumors are noncancerous, some growths on the uterus are cancer. There are also other conditions that can cause symptoms that are similar to common fibroid symptoms, like endometriosis and ovarian cysts.

The knowledgeable doctors at our fibroid center in the Bronx will use advanced ultrasound technology to provide an accurate diagnosis and work with you to determine the best course of treatment.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) — Non-Surgical Fibroid Treatment in the Bronx

UFE is the gold standard of minimally invasive fibroid relief. With this procedure, you won’t require anesthesia or stitches as you would with a hysterectomy or myomectomy. And your uterus is left in place, so the procedure doesn’t impact fertility. 

UFE shrinks fibroids dramatically, resulting in significant symptom improvement in a short amount of time. The procedure requires no hospital stay and only takes between 30 and 45 minutes, so you’ll be able to go home shortly after your appointment.

What to Expect from UFE 

Most women who undergo UFE at our White Plains Road, Bronx fibroid center enjoy a relatively short recovery and noticeable symptom relief. You should be able to enjoy your regular activities five to seven days after your procedure, and you’ll reach full recovery in one to two weeks.

After recovery, you can enjoy a life free from fibroid pain or drastically reduced symptoms. Many women’s fibroid symptoms disappear after treatment, with benefits including:

  • Reduced length and heaviness of periods
  • Pelvic pain and pressure subside
  • Bloating and constipation go away
  • No more need to urinate frequently
  • Ability to fit into normal-sized clothes again because the uterus isn’t enlarged anymore
  • Lower back pain is relieved

You can live your life with increased confidence after your fibroid treatment. Your fibroid symptoms will no longer hold you back from going to work or participating in the things you love.

How UFE Compares to Other Uterine Fibroid Treatments

UFE works by cutting off the blood supply to any existing fibroids. Because it addresses all of your fibroids at once, you can get lasting relief with one procedure. It’s also effective for treating large fibroids, which is why so many women prefer it to surgical options and other treatments.

Here’s a look at how UFE compares to myomectomy, hysterectomy, Acessa, and other treatments for fibroids.

What is the difference between UFE and UAE?

UFE and UAE are the same procedure. Uterine fibroid embolization works by cutting off the blood flow to the fibroids so they can’t access the oxygen and nourishment they need to grow. Uterine artery embolization is the same procedure, it’s just another name for UFE.

With UFE, you don’t have to worry about fertility issues caused by your treatment. It is true that some treatments for fibroids, such as a hysterectomy, will make you infertile. But UFE is different. It’s a safe, effective, non-surgical procedure that leaves your uterus intact.
