Brooklyn Fibroid Procedure
If you are experiencing painful and distressing symptoms caused by uterine fibroids, you will be relieved to discover there’s a minimally invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Although there are other fibroid treatments in Brooklyn— such as hysterectomy, a major surgical procedure — women are often not informed of all their treatment options. Our experts at USA Fibroid Centers are here to help. We offer effective, non-surgical treatment that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, eliminate symptoms, and quickly get you back to enjoying life.
Are Uterine Fibroids Cancerous?
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that appear in or on the uterus. There can be a single fibroid or multiple ones, and fibroids range in size from that of a tiny seed to as large as a melon. Along with causing pain and other unwanted symptoms, fibroids can potentially harm surrounding organs and impact fertility. The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms experienced, as well as their severity.
Uterine fibroid symptoms 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
Some individuals don’t experience symptoms at all.
You’ll know it’s time to seek medical treatment when your uterine fibroid symptoms are interfering with your career, sex life, self-esteem, or social interactions. Consider our state-of-the-art facilities when looking for uterine fibroid treatment in Brooklyn.
Non-surgical Brooklyn uterine fibroids treatment
At USA Fibroid Centers, our fibroid specialists want you to know there are less invasive, lower-risk, non-surgical treatments available. Uterine Fibroid Embolization, a treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), doesn’t require a hospital stay and the recovery time is a short one to two weeks. With Uterine Fibroid Embolization, you’ll quickly be back to enjoying life in Brooklyn and the greater New York City area.
UFE vs Hysterectomy
If you’re concerned about receiving uterine fibroid treatment, that’s understandable. We are here to guide you every step of the way. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by our highly qualified Brooklyn fibroid specialists in USA Fibroid Centers’ state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike other Brooklyn fibroid removal specialists, we use fibroid mapping, a type of ultrasound, to locate your fibroids.
Treatment is performed under light sedation, since general anesthesia is unnecessary:
- Embolic material is injected through a tiny catheter into the uterine artery to block blood flow to the fibroids.
- Once cut off from blood flow and nutrients, the fibroid(s) will shrink and die.
- The injected material remains permanently in the blood vessels at the fibroid site, preventing the fibroid from becoming a problem again.
- Uterine Fibroid Embolization takes only 30-45 minutes.
- Afterwards, all you’ll need is a bandage to cover a small incision in your thigh (no stitches!).
