UFE Procedure Specialists Near Westchester County, 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 Westchester County.
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.

“My doctor sat me down and said, ‘We’ve got other options besides surgery. There’s a little bit more modern technology out there. You don’t have to remove a part of your body. You don’t have to go through all these side effects. The UFE recovery time is 90% shorter than a hysterectomy.’ I researched and thought about it… and opted for UFE.
“From beginning to end [at VIVA EVE], somebody was by my bedside… I felt no immediate pain. I did feel some pain after, but it was bearable, it was for about an hour. But then after that immediate pain was over and I kept control of my medicine to keep the pain from coming back, I didn’t have any further pain after that. I’ve had other procedures done and I would have to figure out a way get my own medicine, whether I’m in pain or whatever. With VIVA EVE, everything came to me. The little goody bag had everything…The instructions were right on point, medicine times were right on point. It was amazing.
“I received follow-up phone calls from the VIVA EVE anesthesiologist, both the doctors themselves, even the young lady that booked my surgery — she was great… I’ve had two cycles since having the procedure. I don’t have any more pain, no more cramping. It’s completely like night and day. It’s still very new for me, I’m two months post op, but I can see a huge difference."
As the second-most populous county on the mainland of New York, Westchester County is a county with an estimated population of 972,634. Westchester covers a large area of 450 square miles (1,200 km2) and consists of 6 cities, 19 towns, and 23 villages. In its early history, the area was established in 1683 and was named after the city of Chester, England. Westchester is the first suburban area of its scale in the world to develop, due mostly to the upper-middle class development of entire communities in the late 19th century, and the subsequent rapid population growth.
