Dr. John Lipman shares his thoughts about unnecessary surgery being prescribed to thousands of women for their benign fibroids. With the help of Atlanta Fibroid Center team, Dr. Lipman continues to educate women about the nonsurgical fibroid treatment option called UFE (uterine fibroid embolization) that takes 30 to 45 minutes, and patients go home the same day with a band-aid while avoiding the risks and long recovery of fibroid surgery. But most importantly, they keep their uterus.
As Dr. Lipman’s experience shows, almost 100% of patients that were told they needed a hysterectomy for fibroids are candidates for UFE. It’s a very high percentage, so any woman suffering from fibroids should get a second opinion because [most likely] there won’t be any need for surgery.
