UFE Provides a Non-Invasive Option for the Treatment of Uterine Fibroids
Uterine Fibroid Embolization is an outpatient non-surgical option for treating symptomatic uterine fibroids. Fibroids are the most common pelvic tumor encountered by women and are found in up to 80% of African-American women. Following the UFE procedure, patients recuperate within the comfort of their own homes on the same day of the procedure. Typically, a woman requires less than a week to fully recover from UFE. More invasive surgical procedures, such as hysterectomy and myomectomy, often require two months or more for complete recovery.
Dr. Lipman has been performing the UFE procedure for the past 25 years, with over 9,000 UFE procedures performed. He is available for appointments by calling (770) 953-2600 or requesting an appointment on the company website, https://ATLii.com. For more information on Dr. Weaver, please visit PR Newswire.
