About the Surgery

Uterine fibroids are tumors that originate in the uterus (womb). Although they are composed of the same smooth muscle fibers as the uterine wall (myometrium), they are much denser than normal myometrium. Uterine fibroids are usually round. In most cases, fibroids do not cause pain. These fibroids never develop in to Uterine cancer.



Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)– A thin tube is threaded into the blood vessels that supply blood to the fibroid. Then, tiny gel particles are injected into the blood vessels. This blocks the blood supply to the fibroid, causing it to shrink. Not all fibroids can be treated with UFE. The best candidates for UFE are women who:
  • Have fibroids that are causing heavy bleeding
  • Have fibroids that are causing pain or pressing on the bladder or rectum
