Embolization is a risk for women with large fibroids. Before agreeing to a fibroid embolization procedure, women need to know the possible complications that can follow. There is a relatively high rate of reintervention with UFE/UAE treatment. Myomectomy and hysterectomy procedures outperform embolization, as all fibroids are removed, and there are fewer post-surgical complications.
The Center for Innovative GYN Care founders Dr. Paul MacKoul and Dr. Natalya Danilyants have developed advanced minimally invasive techniques to perform these procedures using only 2 incisions. Women recover in 10-14 days after laparoscopic LAAM myomectomy and in 7-10 days after minimally invasive DualPortGYN hysterectomy.
