UFE Procedure Specialists Near Brentwood, NY
At VIVA EVE, we specialize in providing comprehensive counseling and UFE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization) procedures to women looking for a medically advanced, safe alternative to the major surgery commonly used to treat fibroids and adenomyosis, a similar non-cancerous condition often confused with fibroids.
UFE is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure designed to block the blood flow to the fibroid tumor, shrinking it until it dies. The technique used to treat adenomyosis is the same as the one used to treat uterine fibroids, this procedure blocks the blood supply to the affected endometrial tissue causing it to die and the adenomyosis symptoms to subside. The procedure is performed while the patient is conscious or minimally sedated, but feeling no pain.
The innovative UFE procedure is performed by our board-certified specialists who have years of experience in the field. Our state-of-the-art outpatient facility has the latest equipment, and our medical staff are trained to provide the best level of care and personal attention to our patients in Brentwood.
Why choose UFE?
Approximately 14,000 successful Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedures are performed annually in the United States. UFE is a very safe method, and like other minimally invasive procedures, has significant advantages over conventional surgery. Studies have shown that nearly 90 percent of women who undergo UFE experience significant or complete resolution of their fibroid-related symptoms.

“Dr Levin, Dr. Gohar and their staff are absolutely the BEST! I had my UFE procedure done yesterday and I felt like I was their only concern before, during and after the surgery. They explained everything each step of the way. I was comfortable, warm and never rushed.There was no fuss when I needed extra time to rest before leaving. They had all my medications delivered to them so I went home with everything I needed and they provided car service there and back. From my first appointment up until my procedure it's been a dream come true. I've put off having any procedures done for over three years because I didn't find a specialist I could trust, until now. I highly recommend their practice!”
