Download Your Free Uterine Fibroid Embolization Guide

Fibroids are classified according to their location within the uterus. It is common for a woman to have multiple fibroids and it may be difficult to understand which fibroid is causing your symptoms. Fibroids may also be referred to as myoma, leiomyoma, leiomyomata, and fibromyoma. 

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a procedure used to treat fibroids without surgery, with a short recovery time. Our board-certified physicians have over 20 years of experience and are national leaders in the field of UFE having performed over 4,000 UFE procedures.  If you need treatment for fibroid symptoms but want to avoid surgery, UFE may be right for you.
