UFE Procedure Specialists Near Bronx, 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 the Bronx.
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.

“I really liked the staff and the surgeon who was very patient and answered every one of my questions. And I had many. I knew exactly what to expect because the staff at VIVA EVE explained everything and also gave me all kinds of things to read. I decided that I need to give UFE a shot.
"The procedure was exactly like they described, the recovery room was great, even had the tablets to look at while you are recovering. The nurses were very nice. This whole thing didn’t feel like a major procedure at all. My boyfriend came with me and they let him in to hang with me for a bit while I was recovering. VIVA EVE even gave us parking coupons.”
