Uterine fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that can relieve pain and other symptoms caused by uterine fibroids by blocking the arteries that allow blood to flow to the fibroids (noncancerous growths).
Without blood supply, the fibroids shrink, relieving symptoms in 90 percent of women. The interventional radiologists at the University of Miami Health System are experts in this procedure.
