Fibroid Treatment in Long Island, NY
Common symptoms of uterine fibroids — such as abnormal bleeding, debilitating cramps, a diminished sex life, and low energy levels — can often be addressed through a minimally invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Although there are multiple fibroid treatments in Long Island available, including surgical procedures like hysterectomy, many individuals suffering from symptoms are not informed of all their options. Our experts at USA Fibroid Centers aim to educate you on this effective, non-surgical treatment that can preserve your uterus, eliminate symptoms, and quickly get you back to living life to its fullest.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that appear within the uterine cavity or wall. They can grow as solitary fibroids or in clusters, and range in size from that of a tiny seed to weighing over 20 pounds. Fibroids can potentially harm surrounding organs and even impact fertility, along with causing painful and unpleasant symptoms. The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms present, as well as the severity.
Symptoms of uterine fibroids can include:
- heavy or prolonged menstruation
- anemia-induced fatigue
- pelvic or lower back pain
- stomach bloating
- frequent urination
- painful sexual intercourse
- severe cramps
- pelvic pressure
Sometimes symptoms are not present at all. If your uterine fibroid symptoms are interfering with your career, sex life, self-esteem, or social interactions, it’s time to look into our state-of-the-art fibroid treatment in Long Island, NY.
Non-Surgical Long Island Uterine Fibroids Treatment
According to a recent report by the Society of Interventional Radiology, one out of five women in the United States think hysterectomy is the only option for treating fibroids. At USA Fibroid Centers, our fibroid specialists want you to know that there are less invasive, non-surgical treatments available. Uterine Fibroid Embolization, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), doesn’t require a hospital stay and will allow you to return to normal activities within just one to two weeks. That means you’ll soon be back to enjoying our town’s peaceful, beautiful parks — or heading to a nearby beach!
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by our highly qualified Long Island fibroid specialists in USA Fibroid Centers’ state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike some other Long Island fibroid removal specialists, we use fibroid mapping to locate your fibroids. This advanced ultrasound-guided treatment is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout. Here’s what happens during a typical procedure:
- A catheter is threaded through a pin-point entrance point towards the arteries supplying blood and nutrients to the fibroid.
- Embolic material is injected through a tiny catheter into the uterine artery to block blood flow to the fibroid.
- Once cut off from blood flow and nutrients, the fibroid(s) will wither away and eventually die.
- The injected material remains permanently in the blood vessels at the fibroid site, making it rare that the fibroid will return to its former, problematic size.
- The small incision (no stitches!) is covered with a bandage.
- You’re able to rest for a little while before heading home with a designated driver.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization takes between 30 and 45 minutes from start to finish. This treatment is low-risk compared to hysterectomy or myomectomy, and your ovaries and uterus remain intact. To learn whether you are a candidate for Uterine Fibroid Embolization, we recommend making an appointment to meet with one of our fibroid specialists. Fibroid treatments at USA Fibroid Centers are performed with skill, cutting-edge technology, and the highest regard for our patients.
