By the age of 50, 70% of women will have developed uterine fibroids at some point in their life. Even when symptoms seem manageable, uterine fibroids should not go untreated. Unlike other practices, VIVA offers a minimally invasive procedure with less pain and with a faster recovery time.

Symptoms:

The majority of women with uterine fibroids do not experience any serious symptoms. However, when symptoms do present themselves, they can include:

  • Painful periods paired with heavy bleeding
  • A full feeling and/or noticeable enlargement in the pelvic area
  • Urinating frequently
  • Pain during sex
  • Lower back pain
  • UF can cause complications during pregnancy and labor
  • Reproductive complications such as infertility or repeated miscarriages

Setting up an appointment with your doctor for a screening can determine whether you need treatment for this condition. Diagnostic imaging such as ultrasound, MRI, X-Ray, and CT scans can aid in identifying uterine fibroids.

Benefits of a UFE Procedure


  • Minimally invasive way to treat uterine fibroids.
  • Patients have experienced relief of symptoms.
  • Recovery time is shorter than surgical options.
  • Risk of complications reduced.
  • Saves uterus from being removed.
