"I cannot give enough thanks to The Fibroid Center.  From the very 1st appointment I knew I made the right decision in seeking a second opinion.  The front office was friendly, scheduling was a breeze and Dr. Cunningham and his nurse were attentive and personal.  Thank you, once again, for such personalized care."

What is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a well-established, proven, minimally invasive procedure using interventional radiology techniques to destroy fibroids in the uterus by depriving them of their blood supply. More women are asking for UFE as it is a safer non-surgical alternative to a hysterectomy. UFE is less invasive, does not require removal of your uterus, involves a shorter recovery time, and results in a significant reduction or elimination of symptoms.

The UFE procedure involves the injection of tiny particles into the artery leading to the fibroid to cut off the blood flow to the tumor. Once the artery is completely blocked, the fibroid will no longer have a regular supply of blood causing the tumor to shrink and reduce or eliminate symptoms.

If you have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, you may have been told you need surgery for the partial or complete removal of your uterus. This news is upsetting and overwhelming for women. Now, there is a procedure available for the treatment, reduction and in some cases elimination of fibroid tumors that does not require surgery, and allows you to keep your uterus.
