Benefits of Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)

Shorter Recovery Time

Typically recovery from uterine fibroid embolization will take between 7-10 days. How fast you return to activity is influenced by many factors such as severity of the original symptoms and size / location of the fibroid. Recovery from a hysterectomy can take 6 weeks.

Shorter Recovery Time

Increased Opportunity to Have More Children

There are many reasons for infertility and uterine fibroids can be one of those reasons. Though embolization cannot ensure that you will become pregnant, having a hysterectomy will certainly preclude that opportunity. Many women wish to retain their uterus.

Minimally Invasive

A minimally invasive approach not only helps shorten recovery time but helps to support the safety of the procedure. A small catheter is threaded through a small opening in the skin into the femoral artery. No larger incisions are required, healing time is minimal.

Minimally Invasive

UFE is Effective

The fibroids shrink because embolization cuts off the supply of blood and nutrients which had allowed the fibroid to grow. The uterus has other sources of blood so it is not effected. With the shrinkage of the fibroid, uterine fibroid embolization has a high record of success at controlling symptoms. Recurrence of fibroids is rare.
