Fibroid Specialist Views on Uterine Fibroids Symptoms
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths within the uterus that often appear during childbearing years and affect as many as three out of four women. In the past, women generally required a hysterectomy to remove fibroids. Today Dr Alphy offers additional and better treatment Fibroid Surgery options as Best Firbroid Specialist in Dubai.
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a revolutionary, minimally invasive procedure with ninty percent success rate. Embolization has replaced hysterectomy as the treatment of choice for many women with fibroids. Fibroid embolization is available at the clinic.
During embolization, an interventional radiologist makes a small incision in the skin and inserts a thin tube (catheter) into the main artery of the thigh. The doctor guides the catheter into the uterine artery. Tiny grains of plastic or gelatin are pumped through the catheter into the uterine artery where they block the blood supply to the fibroids. Once the fibroids’ blood supply is blocked, they shrink and die.
Our Fibroid Specialist program is one of the largest, most successful programs across United Arab Emirates and Dubai.
Other treatment options for fibroids include:
Myomectomy, which removes only the fibroids, not the uterus. This surgery is performed using a hysteroscope (a small scope inserted through the vagina and cervix), a laparoscope (a scope inserted through small incisions in the abdomen), or abdominal surgery (requiring incisions through the abdomen and the uterus).
Hysterectomy removes the entire uterus either by a laparoscopic procedure through the vagina, or by an open surgical procedure. Uterine fibroids are the most common cause of hysterectomy in the country. Contact us to Learn more about more options for minimally invasive hysterectomy
