COMING SOON: Fibroid Treatment in Brooklyn, NY
By the age of 50, most women have uterine fibroids, which are benign tumors that develop on the smooth muscles of the uterus. Not everyone experiences symptoms or even realizes they have these growths. However, an estimated 15 million women in the United States do have problematic symptoms or health concerns related to fibroids.
Uterine fibroid signs and symptoms include heavy bleeding, severely painful menstrual cramps, and urinary or bowel issues. Fibroids can also impact your fertility.
At USA Fibroid Centers in Brooklyn on Flatbush Ave., we offer a minimally invasive treatment for uterine fibroids, helping women access relief with a safe, non-surgical procedure.
If you have fibroid symptoms, our doctors can help. Schedule a consultation to see a specialist at our AAAHC-accredited fibroid treatment center in Brooklyn today.
Minimally Invasive Fibroid Treatment in Brooklyn on Flatbush Ave
At our fibroid center on Flatbush Avenue, our doctors specialize in treating fibroids with uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), also known as uterine artery embolization or UAE.
UFE is an FDA-approved fibroid treatment that can be performed on an outpatient basis. It works by stopping their supply of blood, causing them to shrink and die. The tissue is then safely reabsorbed by the body.
Here are some of the benefits of treating fibroids with UFE:
- The procedure only takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
- Our doctors locate fibroids using an advanced ultrasound method called fibroid mapping, ensuring accuracy.
- It requires light sedation instead of general anesthesia.
- You’ll leave the procedure with nothing more than a band-aid — there’s no need for stitches.
Your uterus is left intact, so you can still get pregnant after UFE.
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.
Common Signs of Uterine Fibroids
Fibroid symptoms vary depending on the type of fibroid, the size, and the number of fibroids.
Some of the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids are excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and severe cramps. These symptoms are often caused by intramural fibroids, the most common type of uterine fibroids. These fibroids grow within the muscular wall of your uterus.
Submucosal fibroids, which grow within the innermost lining of the uterus, can also cause heavy bleeding, as well as lower back pain.
Subserosal fibroids develop under the lining on the outer surface of your uterus and can put pressure on surrounding organs and nerves, leading to pain, frequent urination, and constipation.
Depending on where your fibroids are and how large they are, you might also notice pain during or after intercourse. Larger fibroids can also cause issues like abdominal swelling and a feeling of heaviness and pressure in the stomach or pelvic region.
If you notice any of the following signs, you should see a specialist to get an accurate diagnosis and find out what treatments can help you get relief.
- Heavy or prolonged menstruation
- Anemia-induced fatigue
- Pelvic or lower back pain
- Stomach bloating
- Frequent urination
- Painful intercourse
- Severe cramps
- Pelvic pressure
