Fibroid Treatment in Queens
Uterine fibroids can cause debilitating symptoms such as pelvic pain, a diminished sex life, heavy bleeding, and low energy. While doctors discuss some fibroid treatments in Queens, such as hysterectomy, patients are often not provided with all their options such as nonsurgical treatments. Our experts at USA Fibroid Centers are here to help. We offer an effective, non-surgical treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) that can preserve your uterus, alleviate symptoms, and get you back to enjoying life faster, all while avoiding a hospital stay and surgery.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that grow in the uterus. While not considered dangerous, fibroids have the potential to cause debilitating symptoms, can harm surrounding organs, and cause fertility issues. Fibroids develop as singular tumors or in clusters. The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms present, as well as their severity. Fibroids can be as small as a tiny seed to as large as a melon.
Symptoms of fibroids can 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

In some cases, patients may not experience any symptoms at all. We recommend seeking medical treatment when your uterine fibroid symptoms interfere with your career, sex life, self-esteem, or social interactions. USA Fibroid Centers offer state-of-the-art facilities for fibroid treatment in Queens.
Non-surgical Queens uterine fibroids treatment
At USA Fibroid Centers, our fibroid specialists want you to know we offer a less invasive, lower-risk, non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization doesn’t require a hospital stay, and recovery time is only one to two weeks — compared to a six to eight week recovery for a hysterectomy. After Uterine Fibroid Embolization, we’ll have you back to your normal daily activities in Queens and the greater New York City region in no time.
Our experts guide you through every step of treatment. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is performed by highly qualified Queens fibroid specialists in USA Fibroid Centers’ state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike other Queens fibroid removal specialists, we use an ultrasound technique called fibroid mapping to locate your fibroids. This is performed under light sedation — general anesthesia isn’t necessary. We’ll keep you calm and comfortable as embolic material is injected through a tiny catheter into the uterine artery to block blood flow to the fibroids. After the fibroid(s) is cut off from nutrients, it will shrink and die. The injected material remains permanently in the blood vessels at the fibroid site, lessening the likelihood of it from growing back in the future. Uterine Fibroid Embolization takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Afterwards you will be able to go home with only a bandage covering a small incision on your upper thigh.
To learn more about Uterine Fibroid Embolization, make an appointment today with one of our Queens fibroid specialists. In Queens, fibroid treatments by our experts are performed with skill, cutting-edge technology, and the highest regard for our patients’ comfort.
During your initial consultation, our interventional radiologists will discuss your symptoms, along with your medical and family history. In some cases, your primary physician or OB/GYN may diagnose your fibroids in a routine pelvic exam, and you can then schedule an initial treatment consultation to learn about UFE. We encourage you to bring any MRI or ultrasound results if you have an existing diagnosis and if not, we will use advanced ultrasound technology to determine if you have fibroids.
