Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus and affect 26 million American women by the time they reach age 50. Fibroids can cause various symptoms, including heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pain during sex.
The free webinar, “The Link Between Abdominal Pain and Fibroids” is a valuable resource for anyone struggling with painful fibroid symptoms or those who want to know more about fibroids and treatment.
“There have been significant medical advances in the treatment of uterine fibroids that make it possible for women to keep their uterus and have better outcomes,” said Yan Katsnelson, CEO and Founder at USA Fibroid Centers. “Uterine fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the blood supply to fibroids. This can cause the fibroids to shrink or disappear.”
A significant advantage to non-surgical UFE treatment is that there are no incisions or removal of the uterus, thus preserving fertility. UFE is considered highly effective and is recommended by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The non-surgical procedure involves an interventional radiologist inserting a catheter into the artery under guided imagery to block the blood flow to the fibroid, causing it to shrink and eventually die. After the procedure, the catheter is removed, and a small bandage is placed over the incision.
After UFE, patients can expect resolution of symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pelvic pressure, and pelvic pain. The procedure offers the added benefit of being offered in an outpatient setting and a return to normal activities within a few days.
