Fibroid Treatment in Texas
If you are a person in Texas who is struggling with the negative effects of uterine fibroids, we want you to know that there is hope. Fibroid symptoms –– which can include pain, heavy bleeding, a diminished sex life, and low energy levels –– may be impacting your ability to participate in normal daily activities. The good news is that at USA Fibroid Centers, we offer a minimally invasive treatment called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
Uterine fibroids –– a type of non-cancerous tumor commonly appearing in or on uterine walls –– may grow as a single fibroid, or as multiple fibroids in clusters. They can range in size from that of a tiny seed to as large as a melon, with the largest ones weighing over twenty pounds. Uterine fibroids are not considered dangerous, but they can harm surrounding organs, negatively impact fertility, and cause painful, undesirable, and inconvenient symptoms.
Fibroid symptoms may 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
The type, size, location, and number of fibroids determines which symptoms will occur, as well as their severity. In some cases, symptoms don’t occur at all. Uterine fibroids come in four types, classified by location within the uterus:
Although many don’t believe they are at risk for fibroids, up to 80% of women develop them by the age of 50. There is a range of fibroid treatment options, but patients are often not informed of what’s available. As a result, people often believe that complete surgical removal of the uterus, also known as a hysterectomy, is the only method to treat fibroids. At USA Fibroid Centers, our experts give you all the information you need about a non-surgical treatment option that can preserve your uterus and ovaries, treat fibroid symptoms, and get you back to normal activities.
Don’t let your fibroid symptoms interfere with your career, sex life, self-esteem, and social interactions. To discover cutting-edge fibroid treatment in Texas, contact us to find out if you are a candidate for Uterine Fibroid Embolization.
Non-surgical Texas uterine fibroids treatment
We want you to know that Uterine Fibroid Embolization is an effective, non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment that involves a shorter recovery time than hysterectomy. Our highly qualified, experienced interventional radiologists exclusively perform UFE procedures in our state-of-the-art facilities. Our knowledgeable, compassionate fibroid specialists in Texas will guide you every step of the way through treatment, recovery, and beyond.
About the UFE procedure:
- UFE takes about 30-45 minutes
- No general anesthesia required
- The treatment is performed under light sedation, so you’ll be comfortable and calm throughout
- Before the procedure, your fibroids are located using an advanced ultrasound in a process called fibroid mapping
- After numbing your thigh, one of our doctors makes a small incision, which serves as the entry point for a catheter
- The catheter is threaded into the artery responsible for supplying blood flow to the fibroid
- Your doctor releases small particles through the catheter to block up this artery
- Once blood flow is cut off, the fibroid begins to shrink and will eventually die
- Your incision requires no stitches, just a small bandage
- You should return to your normal, daily activities within one to two weeks
- Your ovaries and uterus remain intact
- UFE can bring quick and significant relief for symptoms impacting your day-to-day life
If you would like to find out whether you are a candidate for Uterine Fibroid Embolization, we recommend scheduling an appointment to meet with one of our fibroid specialists. In Texas, fibroid treatment is performed with skill, cutting-edge technology, and the highest regard for patient care.
After UFE, patients report:
- Shorter, lighter periods, lasting between 5-7 days
- Less constipation and bloating
- Decreased pain during intercourse
- No pelvic pressure or pain
- Normal frequency of urination
- No protruding belly or abdomen
- Buying and using less feminine hygiene products
- Taking less over-the-counter pain medications to manage pelvic pain or cramps
Perhaps the best result is that you’ll no longer need to cancel social plans or avoid work responsibilities due to painful and inconvenient symptoms.
