UFE Procedure Specialists Near East Meadow, 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 East Meadow.
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.

East Meadow is a hamlet with the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County (Long Island), New York with a population of 38,132. In 1655, two surveyors for Hempstead Town reported that the "east meadow" would be suitable for grazing. The area quickly became a grazing area for cattle and later, in the 18th century, for sheep. The sheep of the East Meadow, NY area provided the country with more than 50% of the United States' wool needs during that time. During the American Revolutionary War, East Meadow was occupied by British forces when they discovered the vast amounts of livestock herded there, and remained under their control until the end of the war.
