The purpose of this web site is to educate patients about Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), a nonsurgical alternative treatment 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).

I have only positive things to say about my experiences with you and everyone at St. Luke's....I would refer Dr. Fischer and his team to anyone and told [my doctor] that she made the best referral sending me to you...

End of week three since the UFE procedure and I'm very encouraged about the future. Thanks for your professionalism, bedside manner and obvious interest in my well being.
