Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is an effective treatment performed by Dr. Omar Saleh at the Corona Vein and Fibroid Treatment Center.
The procedure takes about 1-2 hours and the recovery time is about 4 hours. Patients usually can go home the same day with pain medications. Typically, 3 days after the procedure, women may feel intense cramping like menstrual cramps and then they improve over the next 5 days. Some women may experience menstrual bleeding or vaginal discharge for a few weeks and will get lighter as time progresses. Some women may feel improvement in symptoms such as bleeding, pain, and bloating symptoms as early as a few weeks
Many women are worried about not being able to get pregnant after a UFE. There are reports of fertility after the UFE procedure. More data is coming out that shows UFE is comparable to a Myomectomy. We would be happy to go over these concerns and options in clinical consultation and guide you to the appropriate procedure that fits your lifestyle and future goals. Make an appointment with Dr. Omar Saleh at the Corona Vein and Fibroid Treatment Center to learn more about your condition and what options you have.
Uterine fibroids can come back after a few years after a UFE or myomectomy procedure and in some cases women may need a 2nd UFE procedure if they start having abnormal symptoms. Again, a repeat UFE is still less invasive than a hysterectomy or myomectomy.

Sometimes, this chronic pelvic pain can be seen with Pelvic Congestion Syndrome and is “varicose veins” of the pelvis. This is a serious disorder that can be life-debilitating and is not recognized by many medical societies. Once diagnosed with a CT or venogram, it can be treated with ovarian vein embolization. Book a consultation with Dr. Omar Saleh at the Corona Vein and Fibroid Treatment Center to understand what treatment options are right for you.
I have a history of DVT and now my legs chronically hurt and swell.
I have only been told to take blood thinners.
Don’t ever give up hope. We have seen patients with old DVT and performed venogram with angioplasty and stenting that has improved a variety of symptoms such as leg swelling, leg pain, and venous skin ulcers.
