Minimally Invasive

UFE Is a Minimally Invasive Fibroid Treatment

Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure in which a doctor inserts a small catheter into an artery and advances it to the location of the targeted area where it cuts off blood supply to the fibroids, causing them to die and shrink.

Benefits of a Minimally Invasive Procedure

 

Interventional Radiologists created Uterine Fibroid Embolization so they could treat fibroids without all the risk, pain, and blood loss that can occur with surgery. UFE can be performed as an outpatient procedure with no more than an adhesive bandage to cover the small puncture. This is in stark contrast to traditional fibroid surgery or hysterectomy that require stitches or staples to close a much larger incision that is prone to scarring and infection and can result in longer recovery times with expensive hospital stays.
“Uterine Fibroid Embolization performed through a small catheter allows me to deliver a targeted and more effective treatment directly to the affected area of the uterus.” – Suzanne Slonim, MD

Scapel-Free Treatment of Fibroids

Live Fibroid Free!

“I was extremely worried about treatment options after my doctor diagnosed me with uterine fibroids and recommended a hysterectomy or myomectomy which require invasive surgical techniques that involve the use of scalpels or trocars to cut or puncture through the abdominal wall. After watching Dr. Slonim’s video explaining the advantages of Uterine Fibroid Embolization I was relieved to find out that UFE was a better alternative for me and doesn’t use a scalpel or require an abdominal incision.”

Patient Testimonials

See and hear how UFE has improved the lives of our patients.

My doctor told me I needed a hysterectomy

Lynne was diagnosed with fibroids and had a myomectomy. After her myomectomy Lynne found that she still had fibroids so it was recommended that she get a hysterectomy. Lynne decided against a hysterectomy when she discovered that UFE was a better alternative. After her successful UFE procedure and full recovery Lynne has become an advocate for women wanting to treat their fibroids without having to endure the loss of her uterus and long recovery time associated with a hysterectomy.

I’m literally pain free

Pamela was troubled with heavy menstrual flow, but her biggest concern was the pressure symptoms she was experiencing. She had pain during and between her periods, pelvic pressure, back pain, constipation, and urinary frequency. Although it’s unusual to get results so soon after UFE, she is pain free one week after the procedure.

I should have had this done years ago

Ruby is a 46-year-old woman who has suffered terrible symptoms with her periods for years. Her flow was so heavy that she was going through two full packs of pads each cycle. With her heavy flow and severe cramping pain, she was staying home from work a day or two each month. The pelvic pressure, back pain, and frequent urination were interfering with her life. But she didn’t want to have surgery. She heard about Dr. Slonim and Uterine Fibroid Embolization on the radio.

A hysterectomy did not fit into my work life

Tamiko was seriously considering a complete hysterectomy. Due to her work, being immobilized for eight weeks was not an option for her. Hearing about the UFE procedure and Dr. Slonim transformed her outlook and offered Tamiko hope. Tamiko commented that Dr. Slonim was so easy to talk to, you feel like she’s your new best friend. The UFE procedure is a very quick process. Dr. Slonim makes the time to call and check up on how you are doing after the procedure.
