Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) can be a good option for someone with uterine fibroids for several reasons:

Non-surgical approach: UFE is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t involve surgery, reducing the risks associated with traditional surgery.

Preserving the uterus: UFE aims to shrink the fibroids by cutting off their blood supply, often preserving the uterus and its functionality.

Shorter recovery time: Compared to surgery, UFE generally has a shorter recovery period, allowing individuals to return to their daily activities sooner.

Reduced symptoms: UFE can help alleviate symptoms associated with fibroids, such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure.

Less scarring: The procedure involves only a small incision, resulting in minimal scarring compared to surgery.

Option for those who want to avoid hysterectomy: For individuals who wish to avoid a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), UFE can be a viable alternative.

However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if UFE is the right option based on individual circumstances and medical history. Schedule an appointment & talk to us about it.
