What are Uterine Fibroids?


Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that can grow in or around the uterus that can cause symptoms including heavy or abnormal menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure, or bulk symptoms.

  • Other symptoms of fibroids can include urinary incontinence, pain, or constipation. 
  • Many women over the age of 35 have uterine fibroids, but some studies suggest 80% of African American women will develop fibroids in their life. Learn more about the risk factors.
  • The size and type of fibroid can cause different symptoms, or none at all.

Non-Surgical Fibroid Treatments


You don’t have to have surgery to treat fibroids! Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) has many benefits over other treatment options for fibroids.

Women who prefer an alternative to a hysterectomy, or want to avoid surgery overall, should talk with Dr. Hardee or Dr. Fox about UFE. 

Dr. Hardee and Dr. Fox have over 25 years of combined experience performing UFE, a non-surgical procedure that causes the fibroids to shrink to improve related symptoms.
