This minimally invasive procedure requires only a tiny nick in the skin and is performed while the patient is conscious but sedated, usually drowsy and feeling no pain.
An interventional radiologist or a physician that is specifically trained to perform this and other types of embolization and minimally invasive procedures performs fibroid embolization. Our highly trained and skilled physicians and caregivers commonly perform these procedures in PVG managed facilities in an outpatient environment. More detailed information on uterine fibroid embolization is available at our centers. Please contact our physicians for a consult to discuss this and other procedures offered at our centers.
