A Promise to Our Referring Physicians

Thank you for your interest in our Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) and MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) programs. We would like to assure you that each and every patient that you refer to our practice will be treated as one of our family members. We would like to work with you as a team to provide the best possible gynecological care to your patients. We will consult with every patient prior to the procedure and offer these procedures only to those patients who meet the criteria outlined in our uterine fibroid embolization protocol. We will assume full responsibility for the care of the patient in the peri-procedural period, including admitting the patient to the hospital, discharging the patient from the hospital, and managing any post-embolization syndrome symptoms, other problems or questions that may arise. It is, therefore, not usually necessary for patients to be referred by or evaluated by a gynecologist on staff at CHI Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center. We will see the patient in follow-up in approximately 10-14 days after the procedure and will ask only that the patient you in follow-up within a month of the procedure for a routine gynecologic examination. You will only be called in the unlikely event of a severe complication or issue that cannot be handled alone by our service. We will keep you informed of the progress of the patient's work-up, procedure and follow-up with routine correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions or a patient whom you would like to refer for evaluation.
