When it comes to the treatment for uterine fibroids, it has long been medicinal or surgical. But now there are some modern medical procedures that can destroy uterine fibroids without removing it by surgery. Although instant relief is not so easy to achieve when you are in pain, these Denver fibroids treatment procedures will help you get there.
Uterine artery embolization – the doctor injects a series of embolic agents into the arteries that reach the uterus. Thus, the blood no longer reaches the fibroid, which reduces in size and dies.
Radiofrequency ablation – during this procedure, radiofrequency is used to destroy uterine fibroids and reduce the size of the blood vessels that reach it. Recovery is pretty fast. You can return to normal activities in 5-7 days after the intervention.
Robotic or laparoscopic myomectomy – consists of inserting thin instruments, including one with a video camera, through the abdomen, to remove the fibroid. The robotic intervention allows the observation of the uterus in 3D format and provides more accuracy.
Hysteroscopic myomectomy – recommended if the fibroid is submucosal. Fibroid removal is done by inserting instruments through the vagina and cervix to the uterus.
Endometrial ablation – involves inserting a special instrument into the uterus, which will heat the uterine mucosa with a microwave or electricity to destroy some of it. It is recommended to soothe heavy periods.
