Uterine fibroids affect 20-40% of premenopausal women. Margaret was no exception. When she began to experience heavy bleeding and pain, her gynecologist recommended she consider a uterine fibroid embolization.
A minimally invasive procedure, UFE is a highly effective treatment with faster recovery options than a traditional hysterectomy. At her doctor’s recommendation, Margaret reached out to Virginia Interventional & Vascular Associates (VIVA) regarding the treatment. Despite her apprehension about the procedure, she was impressed with how helpful the staff was in answering her questions and making her feel comfortable.
“The nurses were wonderful and reassuring,” Margaret said. “Dr. Hijaz made me feel comfortable as well and was confident in his knowledge of the procedure. It was a very positive experience.”
Since her procedure, Margaret says her quality of life has drastically improved now that the bleeding has stopped and she is no longer in pain.
“It was an amazing help,” she said. “I’m so grateful for the procedure.”
