Suffering with Uterine Fibroids? Why wait in pain?

We offer maximum relief through a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure.

If you have been suffering with painful uterine fibroids you are not alone. Most American women will develop them at some point in their lives. An estimated 26 million Americans have fibroids, and of those, about 15 million suffer from debilitating symptoms, including heavy menstrual bleeding, overly long menstrual periods, pelvic pressure and pain, backaches, and difficulty with constipation or frequent urination.

Know Your Treatment Options

With uterine fibroids, it’s important to know your treatment options. In the past the only alternatives were traditional surgical procedures like a hysterectomy or a myomectomy. Luckily, MTV IR offers an advanced non-invasive treatment that is effective in relieving the pain for a vast majority of women. The procedure is called Uterine Fibroid Embolization or (UFE). This innovative procedure allows you to avoid the risk of surgery, avoid the lengthy recovery, and keep your uterus intact for any future pregnancies.

Here are the benefits of UFE vs. surgical procedures:

  • Preservation of the uterus
  • Decrease in heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and/or pressure
  • Decrease in urinary dysfunction
  • Virtually no blood loss
  • Covered by most insurance companies
  • The procedure lasts approximately 60-90 minutes
  • Requires only a small, pin-sized incision in the wrist or thigh
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Preformed as an outpatient procedure
  • One week recovery

A brief overview of our UFE procedure:

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, which cut off the blood flow to the problematic fibroid, causing the uterine fibroids to shrink and die over time.

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, follow this link
