Non-Surgical Treatment for Fibroid Tumors.
Embolization has existed as a medical procedure since 1975. In gynecology it was used to reduce bleeding during uterine surgery. Founding members of the Fibroid Treatment Collective noticed another important effect. It shrank fibroids. The promise of an effective, non-invasive treatment led to research, trials and medical acceptance. Today more than several hundred thousand women world-wide have found relief with this safe, simple procedure. The Fibroid Treatment Collective performed the very first uterine fibroid embolization in America, and has authored many important articles on the subject.
“Honestly I would say if you have fibroids, please take control of your body, of your life, do the research, because there are options.”
Women often come from outside California to take advantage of the continuity of care provided by Dr. Bruce McLucas and the FTC medical team. Not only from places like New York, Philadelphia and Texas, but from international countries like Mexico, Nigeria and Kuwait.
