Minimally Invasive World-Class Fibroids Treatment For Women in Southern Africa.

Several factors may influence their formation, including hormones, family history and pregnancy.
What are the Symptoms?
Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, pain, pressure on the bladder or bowel, increased urination and pain during intercourse.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
A minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure used to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus.
UTERINE FIBROIDS EMBOLIZATION IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
Fibroid Care focuses on fibroids treatment through uterine fibroids embolization (UFE) also known as uterine artery embolization (UAE). Due to the relatively new nature of uterine fibroids embolization treatment in Southern Africa (fibroid in surgery treatment – non-surgical), many gynaecologists are not familiar with this revolutionary option. The Fibroid embolization treatment is a non-surgical, minimally invasive fibroids treatment alternative for the control of symptomatic uterine fibroids, which can be the cause of heavy menstrual bleeding, pain as well as pressure on the bladder or bowel. Unlike other fibroid treatments in South Africa, the uterus is preserved, making pregnancy possible after fibroid treatment.

WHAT PATIENTS SAY
The result for me is I don’t feel tired anymore. I feel younger than I was then. I have far more energy and a flatter looking tummy. It’s been just over a year now. My fibroid is still there but it is a lot smaller and lighter
Before UFE, during my cycle I would bleed for 10 days. But after UFE I only bled for 3-4 days and significantly less. All the other symptoms I experienced before had improved as soon as three months. I had so much energy afterward. I even started running—it was that drastic
I was thrilled to find an option other than major surgery to solve my problems with fibroids. Better yet was the fact that my recovery was days, not weeks. I missed only one day of work and was swimming even before returning to work. As time passes, I continue to be thankful for this procedure and for Dr Lawson being there throughout the embolization as well as for his continuing follow ups.
