Dr. Yan with WVTM

Dr. Yan Katsnelson, CEO and Founder of USA Fibroid Centers, was invited to go live with Dee Armstrong of Midday with Dee on WVTM 9abc to talk about the symptoms and causes of uterine fibroids and their treatment offered by USA Fibroid Centers.

This interview was aimed at educating women struggling with uterine fibroid about a minimally invasive treatment option called Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Dr. Katznelson explained that fibroids are benign tumors in the uterus that can cause a range of problems, including heavy bleeding, pelvic pressure, and pain during sex.

UFE offers a non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments like hysterectomy. The procedure, performed in an office setting, involves inserting a catheter to reach the blood vessels feeding the fibroids. These vessels are then blocked, cutting off blood supply and causing the fibroids to shrink and die. Patients can typically go home within a few hours and experience manageable cramping for a few days.

More importantly, UFE preserves fertility, making it a safer and more valuable option for women who wish to have children in the future.  Hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, can lead to complications like incontinence, decreased sex drive, and even dependence on medications. Dr. Katznelson also urged women considering hysterectomy to explore UFE as an alternative which is the highly-rated fibroid treatment offered at USA Fibroid Centers nationwide.
