If you have uterine fibroids, you may be experiencing excessive bleeding due to the size or number of fibroids, which are tumors or lumps of muscle cells and other tissue in the uterine wall. Other symptoms may include pelvic fullness, urinary frequency, bloating, or lower back pain.
Fibroid embolization has revolutionized the management of uterine fibroids. For the procedure, a catheter is threaded through the groin into the uterus. Microscopic spheres are injected into the fibroid, depriving it of its blood supply. More than ninety percent of patients experience an almost immediate end to excessive bleeding. Patients also experience a decrease in the size of fibroids within three to six months after the procedure. NYCSA physicians have been performing UFE for over twelve years. Our patients experience excellent success rates with minimal risk of complications.
