It’s Time to Concentrate on Women’s Health.

It’s time to call MTVIR about your Uterine Fibroids.

For most women, the month of October is a reminder to schedule their annual mammogram screening. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been extremely beneficial in both awareness and prevention. As a nation, we have done a wonderful job of focusing on a very important women’s health issue each October.

Now that we are at the beginning of November, we would invite you to continue to focus on women’s health issues by turning your attention to a condition that creates challenges for millions of women around the world. Uterine Fibroids affect 70-80% of all women between 35 and 54. These fibroids are non-cancerous, but sometimes can produce adverse symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, overly long menstrual periods, pelvic pressure and pain, backaches, and difficulty with constipation or frequent urination

For many women who live with fibroids, the pain is intense enough to interfere with normal daily life, let alone the busy holidays.

With the holidays approaching, this time of year is filled with family gatherings, office parties, shopping, and way more activities than usual.

If you or a loved one is suffering with painful uterine fibroids, it’s important to know your treatment options. MTV IR offers an advanced non-invasive treatment that is effective in relieving the pain for a vast majority of women.

In the past, problematic uterine fibroids would require an invasive surgery like a hysterectomy or myomectomy. Now you can avoid the risk of surgery, avoid the lengthy recovery, and keep your uterus intact for any future pregnancies with MTV IR’s Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).

The Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedure performed by MTV IR’s experienced interventional radiologists involves inserting a fiber thin catheter into the radial artery and advancing it through the artery to each fibroid. Then small particles are injected, cutting off the blood flow, causing the fibroids to shrink and die over time. By using UFE to reduce the size of the fibroids, the final removal through hysterectomy or myomectomy can be a much safer process.

So, if you suffer from painful uterine fibroids, contact MTV IR, the leaders in interventional radiology for women in Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. To learn more about MTV IR’s Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure, click here:
