Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths located in a woman’s uterus. These growths tend to develop during a woman’s childbearing years. While they sometimes do not cause discomfort, fibroid symptoms such as prolonged periods, heavy bleeding, and pelvic pain often prompt those with fibroids to receive treatment to relieve the pain.
One study showed between 80% and 90% of African American women and 70% of Caucasian women will have fibroids at some point by age 50. Often, no symptoms will be present, but many times symptoms are often overlooked or mistaken with other issues. At this Houston fibroid clinic, we have expert staff members dedicated to treating uterine fibroids with the safest, least invasive, modern technology.
How does Houston VIR treat fibroids?
There are a variety of treatments for uterine fibroids. At the Houston VIR fibroid clinic, patient care and comfort are a top priority. Because of this, we utilize uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a minimally-invasive surgical alternative to shrink fibroids and eliminate fibroid symptoms. This treatment has an 85-94% success rate and 3-5% chance of post-treatment pain.
