What is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?

Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a non-surgical treatment for fibroid tumors in the uterus. Fibroid tumors grow on the wall of the uterus and are partly genetic. While these fibroids are usually not cancerous, they do cause much discomfort such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pain in the pelvic region and pressure on the bladder.

Go home same day with just one band-aid.

How is the procedure performed?

UFE is a minimally invasive procedure where a highly skilled interventional radiologist will use a high definition x-ray camera to navigate a flexible and thin catheter through a small 5mm incision in your wrist into the uterine arteries to insert tiny gel-like particles to block blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to permanently shrink.

Dr. Neel Patel performs the procedure while the patient is under sedation and local anesthesia.

The procedure is completed in less than an hour and performed at the offices of the Minimally Invasive Center of Atlanta located in Duluth or Decatur, Georgia. There is minimal downtime and patient goes home the same day.
