Our Fibroid Treatment Team
Interventional radiology is a minimally invasive specialty that uses imaging guidance to perform targeted therapies for many conditions. This makes interventional radiology a more effective and often less invasive treatment option. Additionally, because the procedures are minimally invasive, patients typically experience shorter recovery times and less pain than with traditional surgical procedures.
These minimally invasive treatments, including UFE, most often have less risk, less pain, and much quicker recovery time. Our outpatient fibroid center provides all the conveniences of a physician’s office with all the state-of-the-art treatment techniques including ultrasound and fluoroscopic imaging guidance.
