Eastern Virginia's Premier Provider of UFE

Providing Superior Quality and Personalized Care

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the muscular walls of the uterus. These fibroids occur in up to 40% of women over age 35. African American women are three times more likely to develop uterine fibroids with an earlier age of onset. 

Even though they are not cancerous, fibroids can cause excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and pressure, frequent urination, bloating, and other unpleasant symptoms. 

The good news is you may not need surgery to treat uterine fibroids. Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), performed under local anesthesia, is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for fibroids.

For 20 years, the Hampton Roads Center for Fibroid Embolization has been the premier provider of UFE in Eastern Virginia, providing superior quality and personalized care for each and every patient. We will partner with you and your gynecologist to determine the best means of treating your uterine fibroids as effectively as possible.
