Uterine fibroids are benign (noncancerous) growths in the uterus that many women experience.  It is common for a woman to have multiple fibroids and it may be difficult to understand which fibroid is causing your symptoms. 

Northwestern Medicine Fibroids Program at the Center for Comprehensive Gynecology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of uterine fibroids. We offer the full range of treatment options for uterine fibroids, including uterine fibroid embolization (UFE).

What is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)? 
UFE is a non-surgical procedure clinically proven to reduce the major symptoms of uterine fibroids. UFE is minimally invasive, requiring only a small nick in the skin. The procedure lasts less than an hour, and most patients can return to work sooner than with traditional treatments. Our board certified physicians are leaders in the field of UFE and have performed over 6,000 UFE procedures.

Comprehensive Care for Uterine Fibroids
If you have uterine fibroids, finding the right treatment can sometimes seem overwhelming. 

If UFE is not right for you, our fellowship trained minimally invasive gynecologists can help you understand your options and recommend the best course of treatment for you. Learn more about our full range of treatment options for uterine fibroids.
