dp Fibroid embolization is simple and safe.

So Simple. Fibroid embolization shrinks fibroids instead of surgically removing them. It involves one tiny incision. Nothing is cut or removed from the body. The average procedure takes less than 30 minutes. Most patients recover in a few days.

Embolization has been used by surgeons for over 50 years to stop unexpected or uncontrolled bleeding. In the early 90’s, a doctor in France noticed when blood vessels in the uterus were embolized to halt bleeding after childbirth or during surgery, fibroids in the embolized area significantly shrank.
