It is a minimally invasive procedure, which means it requires only a tiny nick in the skin. It is performed while the patient is conscious but sedated – drowsy and feeling no pain. Fibroid embolization is performed by an interventional radiologist, a physician who is specially trained to perform this and other minimally invasive procedures.
The interventional radiologist makes a small nick in the skin (less then ¼ of an inch) in the groin and inserts a catheter into an artery. The catheter is guided through the artery to the uterus while the interventional radiologist guide the progress of the procedure using a moving X-ray (fluoroscopy). The interventional radiologist injects tiny plastic particles the size of grains of sand into the artery that is supplying blood to the fibroid tumor.
This cuts off the blood flow and causes the tumor (or tumors) to shrink. The artery on the other side of the uterus is then treated. Embolization preparation: A tiny angiographic catheter is inserted through a nick in the skin in to an artery and advanced into uterus.While embolization to treat uterine fibroids has been performed since 1995, embolization of the uterus is not new. It has been used successfully by interventional radiologist for over 20 years to treat heavy bleeding after childbirth. This procedure is now available at few hospitals.
“I had so many apprehensions and concerns prior to coming to India for surgery that I needed badly to regain my health. “Thanks for your always prompt responses to my volley of questions and concerns. I could not have managed even a step without your staff’s excellent care.
I couldn’t be happier with the Indian hospitals, surgeon, physicians and their expertise. Everyone is very professional yet compassionate. All staff nurses and doctors are very attentive. My stay during treatment in India was very comfortable"
We thank God that the surgery went very well. The team work between specialists was superb as they ensured all was perfect prior to the surgery. All in all SafeMedTrip tops all others by my standards…and I would recommend it in a heartbeat!
"It feels blessed to have a bundle of joy in our arms and Safemedtrip made our dream of becoming parents come true. It was a joyous experience here in India and I can honestly say that I can’t remember ever been taken care of by so many nice, kind, and caring people.
I’m sure that many people will find it to be a big decision as I did to come to a different country not knowing anyone and worrying about the language barrier, and being so far from home. But yet we came here with full support from the team of Safemedtrip who made sure that we met the experts in the field of fibroids who guided us well throughout. For those who are apprehensive of coming to India for treatment, let me reassure you it is not a problem at all."
