Additionally, UFE can have distinct advantages over fibroid surgeries, such as a myomectomy, for fibroid patients who wish to get pregnant. “Uterine Fibroid Embolization isn’t for women […] Learn more

The ability to stretch so much, so easily, is necessary to accommodate a growing baby (or several babies). But it can also accommodate the growth of some very […] Learn more
