Uterine Fibroids/ Uterine Fibroid Embolisation - Treatments

Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) is a well-established treatment for uterine fibroids. It is minimally invasive procedure performed by an Interventional Radiologist. The fibroids begin to shrink with reduction in size of the fibroid by at least 50% or more within 3 months of the procedure. In some patients, the fibroids completely disappear altogether. The main advantage of the procedure is it is minimally invasive, performed under local anaesthetic, requires one night hospital stay and allows early return to normal activities.

Other treatments for uterine fibroids include hysteroscopic resection, endometrial ablation, myomectomy, hysterectomy and MR guided focussed ultrasound
