Uterine Fibroids Removal

Uterine fibroids are frequently found during a routine pelvic exam. In many cases, they don’t pose an immediate threat, but require medical evaluation to make sure they are not associated with a more serious condition. Many treatment options exist. If you have symptoms, come to see us and discuss your options with one of our experienced physicians.

Procedures for the removal of fibroids

  • Myomectomy – The surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus and the preferred treatment for fibroids. Can be inpatient or outpatient, but recovery period lasts for a few days to up to 2 weeks.
  • Hysterectomy – The surgical removal of parts of or the whole uterus. Recovery period lasts up to 6 weeks. This procedure is typically a last resort.
  • UAE (uterine artery embolization) – A minimally invasive procedure that cuts off circulation to the uterine arteries. While this treatment is generally successful, the recovery period is painful and can last for up to a week.
  • HIFU(high-intensity focused ultrasound) – A procedure in which high-intensity focused sonic energy heats and destroys the fibroids. This treatment has fallen out of favor with most physicians, so it isn’t offered in many clinics.
  • Removal with the Acessa System.
