What Are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine Fibroid Embolization Gives You the Relief You Need

UFE is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the blood vessels that feed uterine fibroids. During the procedure, an interventional radiologist places a tiny incision and uses imaging guidance to inject small, bio-friendly particles that block the blood supply feeding the fibroids. The fibroids will shrink with time, providing lasting symptom relief. 

UFE is covered by major insurance policies.

Surgical Alternative

Seven months later, my fibroids no longer feel like tennis balls in my stomach, and I don’t worry about them. Dr. Horner and his staff were caring, and the treatment I received at the hospital was wonderful.
