Women with fibroids who want to get pregnant need to research all treatment options to ensure their future fertility is protected. Embolization treatments (also known as UAE or UFE), for fibroids are still a higher risk for women who want to conceive. It is also not recommended for women who have large fibroids.
A laparoscopic myomectomy is the procedure of choice for women with fibroids who want to maintain fertility.DISCOVER THE LIMITATIONS OF UFE

GYN SURGERY IN THE NEWS
Power Morcellation: An Unnecessary Risk. This technique is used by many surgeons to cut up large fibroids or uteri in order to perform laparoscopic surgeries. However, the risks associated with it have led the FDA to issue a black-box warning. If cancer cells exist in the uterus, it is possible for the morcellator to spread those malignant cells throughout the pelvic cavity.
CIGC Never uses power morcellation. Our procedures are designed to eliminate the need for power morcellators, and our specialists are highly skilled in laparoscopic techniques, so you can be assured that your surgery will be safe.Learn More

Many studies have shown that embolization of large fibroids is not optimal. Before agreeing to embolization treatments for large fibroids, women need to know the possible complications that can follow the procedure.
Embolization used on large fibroids can result in die-off and expulsion of the fibroid tumor, which can result in an infection. While many uterine infections can be treated with antibiotics, in extreme cases, the infection if unresponsive to antibiotics may require a hysterectomy.Learn More
