Due to the relatively new nature of fibroid embolization treatment in South Africa many gynaecologists are not familiar with this revolutionary option. Fibroid embolisation is a minimally invasive treatment for fibroids which can help treat heavy menstrual bleeding, pain and pressure on the bladder or bowel. Unlike with some other treatment options, the uterus is preserved, making pregnancies possible after fibroid treatment.
The purpose of embolization is to block the blood flow to the fibroids, which ultimately leads to fibroid death and shrinkage with a minimal recovery time in comparison to surgical treatment. Click here to learn more about fibroid embolization treatment in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia
