The short answer is no 😊 UFE is a minimally invasive procedure! 🙌 Using the latest techniques, a Uterine Fibroid Embolisation is performed by an interventional radiologist who inserts a thin catheter into the radial artery through a tiny pinhole in the wrist. With no stitches and no scarring, this is safer and more comfortable for patients with easier mobility after treatment.
