Contemplating major surgery for fibroids?
Today many women can choose a safe, effective and non-surgical treatment option for symptomatic fibroids. This treatment is a procedure called uterine fibroid embolization or UFE. The UFE procedure is performed by an interventional radiologist, it takes approximately one hour and requires an overnight stay in the hospital. Most patients recover from the procedure in approximately one week.
UFE is not experimental. Over 50,000 UFE procedures have been performed worldwide since 1997. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated this uterine-sparing procedure to be effective in alleviating the pain, heavy bleeding and bulk symptoms associated with uterine fibroids. UFE is covered by most major insurance companies.
The interventional radiologists of Radiology Associates of DeKalb, P.C. have safely performed more than 1600 UFE procedures at DeKalb Medical since 1999. Over 90% of women have experienced significant relief of their fibroid symptoms. To schedule a UFE consultation with one of our highly skilled interventional radiologists, please call (404) 501-2660.
