COMING SOON: Expert Care for Fibroids in Upstate NY
Fibroids are extremely common — the National Institutes of Health estimates that 26 million women in the United States between the ages of 15 and 50 have uterine fibroids. And about one in every four patients with fibroids require treatment to resolve their symptoms.
At USA Fibroid Centers in Rochester, NY, we treat fibroids with a non-surgical procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
UFE is a safe, FDA-approved procedure that is highly effective for reducing fibroid symptoms. If you have symptoms and want to avoid the risks of surgery, UFE might be right for you.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization in Rochester
UFE is a less invasive alternative to traditional fibroid treatments. It’s an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require stitches, a hospital stay, or general anesthesia.
Also, UFE doesn’t interfere with your hormones or surrounding organs, giving you peace of mind your uterus and reproductive health won’t be harmed, which may be the case with other treatment options, including fibroid surgery.
UFE works by starving the fibroids of their blood supply, causing them to shrink and die. As a result, fibroid symptoms subside, and many women experience lasting relief after treatment.
Our Rochester fibroid doctors specialize in treating fibroids with uterine fibroid embolization, so they are extremely skilled at the procedure and consistently achieve results that leave our patients satisfied with the outcome. USA Fibroid Centers has a 99% success rate with UFE!
With the help of a leading fibroid specialist in Upstate NY, you can start feeling better, too.
Getting Relief from Fibroid Symptoms at Our Upstate NY Fibroid Center
Fibroids are noncancerous uterine growths. They can form in the muscular walls of the uterus, in the endometrium (the lining of the uterus), or outside in uterine tissue.
Uterine fibroids can be as small as a pea or the size of a melon. And, as they grow, they can put pressure on other organs, such as the bladder or the bowel, and cause a range of painful or uncomfortable symptoms that impact your daily life.
Here is a list of the most common symptoms of uterine fibroids:
- Heavy or prolonged menstruation
- Anemia-induced fatigue
- Pelvic or lower back pain
- Protruding abdomen or belly
- Frequent urination
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Severe cramps or pelvic pressure

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.
