Women’s Health and IR
Women can specifically benefit from interventional radiology through minimally invasive treatments for uterine fibroids, pelvic congestion syndrome, and vein treatment. For example, uterine fibroid embolization uses a catheter to block the arteries that supply blood to the fibroids, causing them to shrink and die.
In addition, our interventional radiologists can treat pelvic congestion syndrome using a sclerosant injected into the dilated veins causing the pain, closing them off, and eliminating pain and discomfort. Take a look at the procedures below, and contact us if you would like to learn more or believe you are a fit for one of our procedures.
