When is a myomectomy better than a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Depending on the size, location, and type of your fibroids, there may be different treatment options that will work best for you. Dr. Suzanne Slonim, M.D., explains when a myomectomy may be the better choice.

“A myomectomy would be preferred if you had a single large fibroid, particularly if it were in the front of the uterus, easy to get to, in front, or side that wasn’t too deep into the tissue, that would be the ideal candidate for a myomectomy.”
