UFE Procedure Specialists Near Mount Vernon, 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 Mount Vernon.
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 made something that could have been a very difficult experience so easy. Everyone there was so nice, friendly and helpful. The interventional radiologist that did the procedure explained everything to both me and my husband in great detail, so I knew exactly what to expect. The nurses that took care of me in recovery were wonderful. I was picked up and dropped off right at my doorstep in a nice black car. I'm now 3 months post UFE and I feel soo much better! I only wish I had done it years ago. I will highly recommend VIVA EVE to anyone thinking of doing UFE. These guys (and girls) are awesome!"
