Women ages 35 to 54 potentially face an increased risk for developing uterine fibroid tumors, the benign, non-cancerous growths in or on the walls of the uterus or womb.

 

Uterine Fibroid Embolization shrinks the fibroid. The interventional radiologist inserts microspheres into the blood vessels leading to the fibroids, reducing blood flow and causing them to shrink. It is an excellent alternative to hysterectomy, as it is less invasive, uses conscious sedation and carries with it a shorter recovery time.
