UFE Procedure Specialists Near Williston Park, 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 Williston Park.
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.

“Dr. Gohar and Dr. Bilal are incredibly compassionate, thoughtful, innovative, caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Gohar had been treating me for a little over a year and finally recommended the UFE procedure, which honestly scared me. After speaking with Dr. Bilal I know I am in very capable hands. Dr. Gohar's practice/office is beyond women friendly, everything from availability to when and how the UFE/UAE procedure is done, has the patient's lifestyle and needs as the main priority."
Williston Park is a village within the town of North Hempstead in Nassau County, New York with a population of 7,287. Williston Park was founded in 1926 when 195 acres of land were purchased by New York City developer William Chatlos. Chatlos was seeking to create an affordable, planned community for New York City residents wishing to move to the suburbs. Later that year, residents of the village voted to break with the residents of East Williston and formally incorporate the village. Williston Park is named for Samuel Willis, a settler who came to the area in the late 17th century.
