Uterine fibroids (FMU) are the most common human benign tumor and the most common tumor in a woman’s reproductive system; uterine fibroids occur in 20 – 25% of women in general and in about 40% of women over the age of 50 who still have menstruation.
There are several treatment options.
It consists of administering products from synthetic or naturally micronized progesterone (preferably) or hormonal products such as GnRH (another female hormone), which in 40-60% of cases significantly reduces the volume of fibroids. However, these treatments are done in the short term, and the return of fibroids after stopping them is very common. In addition, there may be severe side effects – hot flashes, osteoporosis, etc. – and the cost of their treatment is quite high. Hormonal treatment is typically recommended for women who want to maintain their reproductive function.
This is the most effective way to treat uterine fibroids and is reserved for symptomatic and complicated large fibroids. The type of surgery depends on the woman’s age, size and number of fibroids, evolution, and complications.

This uterine fibroids treatment Denver clinics offer is a new minimally invasive method with satisfactory long-term results, which has a number of advantages compared to conventional treatment methods. There is already enough evidence in the medical literature to suggest that endovascular treatment with embolotherapy is an effective alternative to surgical treatment.
