What specialists are trained qualified to perform Embolization?

Fibroid embolization is performed by Interventional Radiologists. It can be performed in a hospital setting or at an outpatient clinic such as our clinic. It is a same day procedure with on average a recovery of one week. Hysterectomies and myomectomies can be performed by your Surgical ObGyn. They are usually performed in a hospital setting and require hospital stay and an average of 6 weeks of recovery. Please note that Interventional Radiologists are the only fibroid specialists that undergo formal training in non-surgical minimally invasive treatment of fibroids, through recognized fellowship programs at university hospitals.
