Uterine fibroid treatment evolves

PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) Interventional Radiologists are providing advanced treatment to assist patients suffering from uterine fibroids. As many as one in five women may have uterine fibroids during their childbearing years. Half of all women have fibroids by age 50. According to PMC Interventional Radiologist Dr. Rami Sartawi, uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. They can be asymptomatic, but can also cause a lot of discomfort. “Typical symptoms include heavy bleeding, prolonged bleeding, painful intercourse, frequent urination, bloating and pelvic pressure,” Sartawi said. Traditionally, an obstetrician/gynecologist would remove the largest uterine fibroid, specific fibroids in the uterus or remove the uterus entirely.   As procedures and knowledge has evolved, the treatment of uterine fibroids can be performed without ever needing an incision through a procedure called Uterine Fibroid Embolization or Uterine Artery Embolization. more on this story...
