Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a procedure that treats fibroids and prevents new growths. The benefit of getting a UFE over a hysterectomy is that the patient does not lose their uterus. It can be performed in an outpatient setting by an interventional radiologist or vascular surgeon.

Uterine fibroids can grow on different parts of the uterus and can be really small or really big. They are benign tumors that grow on the uterus and they can cause pain and discomfort to the women that have them.
