Uterine Fibroids

  Uterine fibroids are common, noncancerous growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus. They can range in size from very tiny—as small as a quarter of an inch—to larger than a grapefruit. Even the smallest ones can cause intense pain and heavy bleeding that affect your quality of life. In your search for relief, you may have been told that a hysterectomy is the only solution to your debilitating symptoms. Not anymore. The Interventional Institute at Holy Name Medical Center offers a highly effective, minimally invasive option to treat uterine fibroids—without a hysterectomy or any major surgery.

UFE symptoms include:
  • Pain
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Prolonged periods
  • Sensation of fullness or pressure
Advantages of uterine fibroid embolization:
  • Little or no hospital stay
  • Minimal post-procedure discomfort
  • Faster recovery
  • No hysterectomy
  • Fewer complications
Minimally invasive treatment for uterine fibroid

A uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is the minimally invasive answer to life-disrupting fibroids. Through a small nick in the groin, Holy Name's interventional radiologists guide a thin catheter into the uterine arteries that supply blood to the fibroid tumor. Tiny particles— about the size of grains of sand—are injected to block the flow of blood to the fibroid. With no blood supply, the fibroids shrink and die. The procedure is simple. The relief is dramatic.
