If I have multiple fibroids, am I still a good candidate for a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Uterine fibroid embolization involves blocking the blood supply to the fibroids, no matter how many you have. Dr. Linda Hughes, M.D., gives more details.

“Many women are concerned that if they have multiple or many fibroids that they’re not a candidate for this procedure. The vast majority of women that we see and that we treat actually do have more than one fibroid. It does not matter how many fibroids, whether a patient has 1 or 101 fibroids, the way the procedure is designed by embolizing both uterine arteries, we’re knocking off and cutting off the blood supply to all of the fibroid tissue.”
