Common Uterine Fibroid Symptoms
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus during childbearing years. Uterine fibroids affect up to 80 percent of women by the time they are 50, and African American women are three times more likely to experience fibroid growth than other racial groups.
What is Uterine Fibroid Embolization?
UFE is a minimally invasive procedure performed in an outpatient setting. During a UFE procedure, our expertly trained physicians make a slight incision in the groin or wrist and insert small catheters, aided by image-guided technology, to locate the fibroids. Once the fibroids are located, tiny particles are injected into the small blood vessels that “feed” the fibroids. The particles block the blood flow and cause the fibroids to shrink.
