How long should I expect to stay in the hospital after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Uterine fibroids embolization is a less invasive procedure with a short recovery time and low risk of complications. The doctors that perform your treatment will make sure you are ready to go home before they discharge you. Dr. Suzanne Slonim, M.D., explains:

“You’ll stay in the hospital overnight. Almost every woman goes home the following day, usually in the early afternoon. We’ve had one woman have to stay longer than one night, and that was because of nausea and some pain control, we kept her just to make sure that she was going to be okay.”
