A Less Invasive Treatment for Patients with Symptomatic Uterine Fibroids

Millions of women have uterine fibroids, many of whom experience few symptoms and may leave them untreated. However, in 25 to 50 percent of the cases, fibroids may cause discomfort and may require treatment. The good news is with an innovative treatment option at Mount Sinai West, you don’t have to worry about a major surgery like a hysterectomy to remove the fibroids.

Our interventional radiologists offer an advanced minimally invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) to treat fibroids. With UFE, treatment is performed without major incisions. Patients leave the same day and quickly return to regular activities.

Uterine Fibroids Symptoms

If you are experiencing pelvic pain, pressure, irregular bleeding, or discomfort, you may have uterine fibroids. These symptoms may be uncomfortable or even alarming, including:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Periods lasting longer than a week
  • Pelvic pressure or pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Constipation or bloating
  • Back or leg pain

Is this Treatment Right for Me?

UFE is an excellent treatment option for many people with fibroids—about 90 percent of patients who undergo uterine fibroid embolization will experience significant improvement or their symptoms will go away completely with minimal recovery time. Plus, with UFE, the uterus is preserved along with the patient’s fertility.
