How Invasive is Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Dr. Rundback explains how invasive the Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure is. UFE stands for Uterine Fibroid Embolization, which is a method of treating patients with symptomatic fibroids. Embolization is the medical word we use for blocking blood supply, and often in women with fibroids, bleeding is a predominant problem. By blocking the blood supply in a minimally invasive way, through a catheter inserted from the artery by the hip, we’re able to stop that bleeding by blocking the arteries which cause the problem. It’s really not very invasive. This is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. There’s no surgery, no cutting, and no marks. The procedure itself is relatively painless.
