How Are Uterine Fibroids Treated

Uterine Fibroid Embolization vs Surgery

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), also known as Uterine Artery Embolization, is a procedure that’s targeted toward decreasing and stopping the blood flow that goes towards the fibroids. UFE is an image-guided, minimally invasive treatment that provides less recovery time, better outcomes, and no hospital stay. A surgical treatment uses cutting or sometimes laparoscopic equipment in order to directly remove either the uterus with a hysterectomy or individual fibroids in a procedure called a myomectomy. Uterine Artery Embolization is a minimally invasive way of decreasing the impact of fibroids without doing an actual surgical procedure. Learn more at
