What are Fibroids?

Fibroids, also known as uterine fibroids or leiomyomas, are benign (non-cancerous) tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus. They can be of varying size, from being as small as a quarter to, in some extreme cases, the size of a small melon. In rare cases, fibroids can even simulate the size of a full pregnancy. The good news is, fibroids are a very treatable condition.

Treatments: Why Minimally Invasive Procedures May Be Your Best Choice

Our Uterine Fibroid Embolization process is designed to be easy and effective. What does it entail?

  • Minimally invasive procedures performed through a pin-sized hole in your wrist or thigh
  • Usually performed as outpatient
  • 1-Week recovery
  • Preserves uterus.

Surgery is complex and painful, with longer recovery times and often the removal of the uterus. At Fairfax Vascular Center, we help you quickly move on from fibroids and live your life how you want.
