Fibroid Treatment in Forest Hills, NY

70 to 80% of women will develop uterine fibroids before the age of 50, however, over half of women do not think they’re at risk. If you are experiencing fibroid symptoms – including periods that last more than 10 days, severe menstrual cramping, or frequent urination – you may want to talk to your doctor about whether fibroids may be to blame.

If you’ve already been diagnosed with fibroids, but have been putting off treatment, we have good news. Although many believe that hysterectomy – the surgical removal of the uterus – is the only solution, at USA Fibroid Centers we offer a less invasive, non-surgical treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Our experts want women with uterine fibroids to be informed of the full range of treatment options before making a decision. This effective, FDA-approved treatment can preserve your uterus, bring relief to painful and unpleasant symptoms, and get you back to doing the things you love.

Do You Have an Irregular Period?

Uterine fibroids are a type of benign growth commonly found on the uterus. Although they are not cancerous, fibroids nonetheless have the potential to cause harm to surrounding organs and, in some cases, impact fertility. Fibroids can grow singly or in multiples, and can range in size from that of a tiny pea to larger than a melon, with the largest ones weighing over 20 pounds.

The type, size, location, and number of fibroids can impact which symptoms are present, as well as their severity. Some individuals experience no symptoms at all.

Common fibroid symptoms can include:

Minimally-Invasive Forest Hills, NY, Uterine Fibroid Treatment

At USA Fibroid Centers, our fibroid specialists educate patients about a non-surgical treatment available that allows the uterus to remain intact. Uterine Fibroid Embolization has been approved by the FDA and involves a much shorter recovery time than surgery. Most patients return to normal activity within one to two weeks. 

Our highly qualified Forest Hills fibroid specialists perform Uterine Fibroid Embolization in state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike some other Forest Hills fibroid removal specialists, we use an advanced ultrasound method called fibroid mapping to locate your fibroids. UFE treatment takes between 30 to 45 minutes and is performed under light sedation, so you’ll remain comfortable the entire time:

  • Our interventional radiologist makes a small incision in your upper thigh
  • Embolic material is injected through a tiny catheter into the uterine artery 
  • This material blocks blood flow to the fibroids
  • After being 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 unlikely that the fibroid will regrow in the future
  • Afterwards, all you’ll need is a small bandage on your incision before you head home

At USA Fibroid Centers, we want women struggling with fibroid symptoms to always have access to quality, trusted care. That’s why we have clinics located across the country, in 16 different states. Our Forest Hills clinic is located close to public transportation and surrounded by local businesses, restaurants, and retail shops. If you want to discover whether you are a candidate for UFE, schedule an appointment to meet with one of our specialists. In Forest Hills, fibroid treatments are performed at our office with the highest regard for our patients’ comfort and safety.
