Holy Name Medical Center is presenting a program to introduce options available to women facing surgery or hysterectomy due to uterine fibroids. Dr. Singh will explain how uterine artery embolization is a minimally invasive treatment for uterine fibroids and noncancerous growths in the uterus. In uterine artery embolization the doctor uses a slender, flexible tube (catheter) to inject small particles into the uterine arteries, which supply blood to your fibroids and uterus. The goal is to block tiny vessels that lead to your fibroids, starve the fibroids and cause them to die. Come and find out how you can avoid surgery while enjoying freedom from fibroids.
