Women diagnosed with uterine fibroids have a major concern about surgical options for treatment. This include hysterectomy (surgery to remove the entire uterus), or myomectomy.
For those looking to preserve their uterus and to avoid surgery, there is another choice to consider which is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
Uterine fibroid embolization is performed at Dar Al Khebra by our clinical team with great success.
The procedure is safe and performed under local anesthesia and patients can return back home at the same day It involves the placement of small catheter which reaches the blood supply of the fibroid and then the injection of small beads within these blood vessels . This blocks the blood supply and cause the fibroids to shrink.
Patients benefit from this procedure immediately as pains associated with fibroids are relieved , the fibroid itself shrinks from 30-to 50% in few months
