How Do You Treat Your Challenging Fibroid Patients?
Consider Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)
At Fibroid Institute Texas, we understand that for many women with uterine fibroids a hysterectomy or myomectomy is the recommended treatment. Obstetricians and gynecologists, family physicians and health care practitioners who manage women’s health issues often advise for these surgeries. More than 600,000 hysterectomies and 30,000 myomectomies are performed in the U.S. annually. However, we also know that hysterectomy or myomectomy is not the right fit for all women in every case.

We understand your patients’ medical, surgical, and reproductive histories—as well as personal wishes—all play a role in determining the best fibroid treatment. If you don’t currently have an alternative for these patients, please consider recommending Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
How We Treat Your Fibroid Patients with UFE
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a highly effective non-surgical treatment option for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids who are not candidates for a hysterectomy or myomectomy. UFE allows a woman to keep her uterus. During the procedure a small catheter is inserted into the radial artery and then advanced to the uterine arteries. Next, small particles are injected to block blood flow to the fibroid tumors, causing them to shrink and die.
