Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Uterine fibroids can sometimes be managed with medications and hormone therapy. Surgical management with removal of the fibroids or the entire uterus is reserved for some cases. Arterial embolization also known as Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) of the fibroids is one of the safest and most effective ways of treating most fibroids. The uterus is left intact and patients can return home the same day with some restrictions.
