Fibroid Treatment in Manhattan
If you’re experiencing common symptoms of uterine fibroids — such as abnormal bleeding, debilitating cramps, a diminished sex life, and low energy levels — you may be relieved to learn of a minimally invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Although there are multiple fibroid treatments in Manhattan available, including surgical procedures like hysterectomy, many individuals suffering from fibroid symptoms are not informed of all their options. At USA Fibroid Centers, our experts aim to educate you on this unique, effective, non-surgical treatment that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, eliminate symptoms, and quickly get you back to living life to its fullest.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that appear in or on the uterus. They can grow as solitary fibroids or in clusters, and range in size from a tiny seed to as large as a melon — with some weighing over 20 pounds. Fibroids have the potential to harm surrounding organs and even impact fertility, along with causing painful, unpleasant, and inconvenient symptoms. The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms present, as well as the severity.
Possible 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
If you are experiencing uterine fibroid symptoms that interfere with your career, sex life, self-esteem, or social interactions, it’s time to look into our state-of-the-art fibroid treatment in Manhattan.
Non-Surgical Manhattan Uterine Fibroids Treatment
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 FDA, doesn’t require a hospital stay and will allow you to return to normal activities within one to two weeks. That means you’ll soon be back to enjoying life in the city that never sleeps!
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by our highly qualified Manhattan fibroid specialists in our state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike some other Manhattan fibroid treatment specialists, we use fibroid mapping, an advanced ultrasound-guided method, to locate your fibroids.
This treatment is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout:
- During the procedure, 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 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.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Once it is over, all you need is a bandage to cover a small incision in your thigh. This treatment is low-risk compared to hysterectomy, and your ovaries and uterus can remain intact. To discover if you are a candidate for UFE, we recommend making an appointment to meet with one of our Manhattan fibroid specialists. In Manhattan, fibroid treatments at USA Fibroid Centers are performed with skill, cutting-edge technology, and unparalleled care for our patients.
