Procedure For Treating Uterine Fibroid
At our practice, we offer medications, non-invasive treatment, and minimally invasive treatments for uterine fibroids. The medications our specialists prescribe for uterine fibroids focus on hormones that control your menstrual cycle; these drugs treat symptoms such as pelvic pressure and heavy menstrual bleeding. They don’t destroy fibroids but might significantly reduce their size.
Some of these medications include Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, Progestin-releasing intrauterine device (IUD), and Tranexamic acid (Lysteda, Cyklokapron). Our non-invasive treatment for uterine fibroids helps preserve your uterus, is done on an outpatients basis, and requires no lacerations.
Our specialist carries out this procedure while you are inside an MRI scanner equipped with a high-energy ultrasound transducer. The images give our specialist the exact location of the uterine fibroids. When the location of the fibroid is obtained, the ultrasound transducer directs sound waves into the fibroid to heat and destroy little areas of fibroid tissue. Our minimally invasive procedures can destroy uterine fibroids without removing them through surgery.
Some of the procedures include uterine artery embolization, Radiofrequency ablation, Laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy, Hysteroscopic myomectomy, and Endometrial ablation. Our available treatment options for traditional surgical procedures include Abdominal myomectomy and Hysterectomy. It is important to note that Hysterectomy, uterine artery embolization, radiofrequency ablation, and endometrial ablation are not the best options if you want to optimize fertility.
