Suffering from uterine fibroids? Do you suffer with heavy cycles, pain, urinary frequency, constipation, or painful intercourse? You may have uterine fibroids. Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors located in and around the uterus and normally wreak havoc on your life during your monthly cycle. If you find yourself planning your life around your cycle, you may uterine fibroids. Treating your fibroids is simpler than ever and is only a call away.
You don’t have to suffer in silence. There is a minimally invasive procedure available for women who are interested in a non-surgical option. While myomectomy and hysterectomy are treatment options, women who would prefer something less invasive can choose UFE.
Uterine fibroid embolization takes less than an hour, the patient goes home the same day and the recovery period is about a week. Women interested in UFE can visit our brand new, state of the art office located on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. Dr. Neel Patel is the director of the Minimally Invasive Center of Atlanta also known as the Atlanta Fibroid Clinic. Dr. Patel offers 45 minute consultation with each patient so they’re armed with information to make an informed decision about their health.
After the patient has a MRI, they will come to our office to speak with Dr. Patel one-on-one. Patients have a chance to ask questions and find out more information about UFE. Dr. Patel performs the latest UFE procedure which gains access through the radial artery in the wrist. The procedure is covered by most insurance and is performed in our office. Patients normally have their procedure in the morning and stay about an hour afterwards and then they go home to recover. There are restrictions on traveling or flying which makes life a little easier for women who have to travel for work.
