What Can Happen if Uterine Fibroids Are Not Treated

What to Expect During Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Dr. Donikyan explains the experience from start to finish for a UFE procedure. When a patient gets referred to us for a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure, we like to start with a 30-40 minute consultation, in which we go over the procedure. We review any imaging that has been performed. If imaging hasn’t been done in the last 6-12 months, we like to take new imaging to make sure we get a good idea of what we’re dealing with anatomically. We go over the risks, potential complications of the procedure, and we thoroughly review the patient’s medical history and any potential other treatment options that could be offered. Once we schedule the procedure, a patient can expect to come into our outpatient center the day of the appointment and have their chart reviewed by our nursing staff. There are tests performed the day of the procedure to confirm anatomically how to proceed. Schedule your consultation today at 1-833-UFE-EXPERT (1-833-833-3973)
