Fibroid Treatment on St. Nicholas Ave, Manhattan NY
USA Fibroid Centers offers multiple locations around New York City and our Manhattan office located on St. Nicholas Ave offers women in our community access to the non surgical fibroid called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (also known as Uterine Artery Embolization) performed by our expert doctors with experience helping women find relief from painful symptoms.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization in Manhattan, NY
Many people with fibroids believe that hysterectomy is their only treatment option. However, there is a FDA approved option called Uterine Fibroid Embolization. We aim to educate our patients about this less invasive, lower-risk, less painful, non-surgical treatment that ultimately leaves the uterus intact and offers a significantly shorter recovery time than major surgery.
Unlike fibroid removal surgery, Uterine Fibroid Embolization:
- Locates fibroids using an advanced ultrasound method called fibroid mapping
- Takes between 30 and 45 minutes
- Uses light sedation — not general anesthesia — to keep you calm and comfortable
- Requires only a small incision in your upper thigh
- Injects embolic material through a catheter into the uterine artery to block blood flow to the fibroids
- Causes the fibroid(s) to shrink and eventually disappear
- Leaves the injected material permanently in the blood vessels at the fibroid site, making it unlikely that the fibroid will regrow in the future

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.
