Women who suffer from severe fibroid symptoms may be advised to consider having a hysterectomy. However, a hysterectomy involves serious risks, such as damage to nearby organs, a very lengthy and difficult recovery period, and long-term or permanent side effects. Fortunately, there's an alternative to hysterectomy: UFE. Women who choose to have uterine fibroid embolization near Atlanta can enjoy significant relief or elimination of their painful fibroid symptoms. In fact, about 90 percent of patients report a dramatic improvement in symptoms after having uterine fibroids embolization.

Another advantage of UFE is its safety as compared to hysterectomies. To prepare for a UFE procedure, the physician will inject a local anesthetic and make a very small incision that doesn't even require stitches. In contrast, patients undergoing a hysterectomy need to have general anesthesia, which carries inherent risks. Another benefit of having a small nick in the skin as compared to a large incision is that women won't have a large, embarrassing scar across the abdomen. Plus, they can return to their usual activities after only about four to five days.
