The purpose of this web site is to educate patients about Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) and MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) two non-surgical, minimally invasive, exciting new treatment alternatives for symptomatic uterine fibroid tumors. Fibroids (leiomyomas) are benign tumors made of muscle tissue that grow in the uterus and are very common in women of child bearing age. Fibroids occur in one-third of all women and can cause significant symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, pelvic pressure, frequent urination, back pain, constipation and infertility. Traditional treatment options include hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) and myomectomy (surgical removal of only the fibroids). There are also multiple newer, less invasive treatment options available for fibroids including UFE, MRgFUS, laparoscopic surgery, hysteroscopic surgery and robotic surgery. No single treatment option is best for every fibroid patient. Determining the best treatment option for any given patient should take into account multiple factors including the size, number, location and blood supply to the fibroids, the patient's age, desire for future fertility and other medical problems (if any).



Thank you so much for everything!! You really went that extra mile ("marathon"} in getting approval for my procedure and I want you to know that I appreciate your dedication and efforts. I feel like a new person and my energy level has tripled!

I wanted to say ?Thank You? for everything you have done for me. I truly appreciate all of your care and concern you provided during my procedure.

I wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of me??You took the time to call me at home and meet with my husband and I prior to the surgery. You walked me through all of the procedure (I never went out). Things that you did to make me feel comfortable Re: procedure, I find that some doctors don't perform anymore. Anyway, all I want to say is Thank You.
