Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Uterine fibroids are benign tumors in the smooth muscle, or myometrium, of the uterus. Uterine fibroid embolization is an innovative, non-surgical fibroid treatment by interventional radiology specialists. 

Also known as uterine artery embolization, this technique provides women with an effective and minimally invasive alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy - the surgical treatments traditionally used to treat fibroids. Our board-certified physicians have extensive experience in performing uterine fibroid embolization.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome Treatment
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS), also known as pelvic venous insufficiency, occurs when varicose veins develop in the pelvis and around the ovaries. PCS can cause multiple symptoms including pain, irritable bladder, abnormal menstrual bleeding, vaginal discharge, and varicose veins on vulva, buttocks or thigh.

Our team of interventional radiologists treat these engorged veins with minimally invasive therapy as an outpatient.
