Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is an image guided minimally invasive treatment for benign tumors of the uterus known as fibroids. This procedure is performed by specially trained interventional radiologists as a non-surgical way to reduce the symptoms related to fibroids. UFE is much less invasive than open surgery done to remove uterine fibroids or the whole uterus (hysterectomy). No surgical incision is needed and patients can usually resume normal activities much earlier than if they had a hysterectomy.
