If you are having a Uterine Artery Embolization
prior to your surgery, download these Patient Instructions:
Nearly thirty five percent of premenopausal women experience
debilitating symptoms related to uterine fibroids. These symptoms
include heavy menstrual bleeding, severe cramping, urinary frequency
and pelvic pain. While these symptoms are not life threatening, they
can be debilitating to the average woman and result in missed work,
severe anemia and hospitalization.
Interventional Radiology provides a
less invasive outpatient treatment option for patients with symptomatic
uterine fibroids that provides symptomatic relief without the need for
hospitalization or surgery.
