Minimally Invasive Fibroid Treatment in East Harlem, New York
Fibroid symptoms can impact your life, relationships, career, and health. Our Fibroid Centers on 1st Avenue in East Harlem, New York, can help you regain control of your life and enjoy your daily routines.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive treatment for fibroids performed in an outpatient setting at our state-of-the-art facilities. A light sedative and local anesthetic are used with no need for general anesthesia or an overnight stay in the hospital. The interventional radiologist will locate the fibroid with ultrasound, guiding a tiny catheter into your thigh or wrist. Embolic materials will be injected into the artery attached to the fibroid, blocking blood flow and nutrients from reaching the fibroid. It can shrink and die in the coming weeks, allowing your symptoms to subside.
If you need relief from fibroid symptoms, we encourage you to visit us on 1st Avenue in East Harlem, located just a couple of blocks from the Innovation Charter High School.
