Request Consultation

VIVA EVE was founded by a team of fibroid doctors and specialists who felt that women should be able to choose their own path to health, with their doctor’s support. By providing up-to-date techniques and sound advice, the experts at VIVA EVE help you choose the most appropriate option for treating such illnesses as fibroid tumors, endometriosis and adenomyosis.

The entire VIVA EVE team treats you as they would want to be treated: supported, cared for and respected. Every patient is a priority. Our fibroid specialists help you determine which treatment is the best way to treat your uterine fibroids. Only treatments that are appropriate for you get recommended. At our fibroid center, we believe you shouldn’t have to live with the pain, discomfort, and inconvenience of fibroid symptoms. We specialize in uterine fibroid embolization — UFE.

Our team of board-certified physicians, best rated fibroid specialists and caring staff will help guide you through diagnosis and treatment options. Because not all patients are suitable candidates for UFE, we start each patient relationship with the goal of always recommending the course of treatment that is best for the patient and her unique circumstances.
