UFE treatment is endorsed by the American College of Gynecology as a primary treatment for uterine fibroids. It provides a faster recovery time than surgical options, allowing for a return to normal activities in 7-10 days, compared with 6-8 weeks for a traditional hysterectomy. UFE is also significantly less invasive than a traditional hysterectomy.
There are very few complications associated with uterine fibroid embolization. In fact, more than 90% of our patients experience almost immediate relief from excessive bleeding.
