UFE Procedure Specialists Near Long Island, 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 Long Island.
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.

“VIVA EVE staff instantly made me feel very comfortable. Everyone there seems to be very kind and attentive. My MRI showed that I am a good candidate for the procedure, so I decided to go for it. The doctor discussed all the details of the procedure and what I could expect. They also gave me a bunch of materials to read at home and to show to my husband.
"On the day of the surgery, I got picked up at my home in a black car. The facility was very clean and modern. The procedure itself lasted about an hour. The recovery room was very nice, it even had a tablet with "Netflix on it attached to the bed! After the procedure I did get some cramps, but the drugs I got really helped. I was pleasantly surprised when I got a call from the surgeon the following day. They called me to check up on me for, like, three days!
"It’s been 3 months after I had my UFE. I noticed that my bleeding was not as heavy the first time I had my period. By my 3rd cycle it really got much better. I can now use regular tampons and pads and I used to use super plus. I can now sleep through the night without going to the bathroom. My stomach feels smaller and I definitely have more energy. I am soo happy I chose UFE instead of all the other procedures!"
