Uterine Artery Embolisation for Fibroids

Uterine artery embolisation is now a well established  treatment for uterine fibroids, one of the commonest gynaecological problems that can lead problems such as heavy periods that interfere with daily acitivites, period pain and pressure symptoms.

The following sections explain what fibroids are, what treatments are available and how embolisation compares with the other treatment options. As each case is unique you should consider any information on this site in conjunction with your gynaecologist’s advice. You can download a patient information booklet and contact Dr. Crowe to make an appointment to discuss your individual situation in more detail.

Dr. Crowe and his teams at the BMI Priory Hospital in Birmingham and at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital have been offering UAE for over thirteen years and he has performed  over 2000 cases. He has been the leading individual contributor to the UK Fibroid Embolisation Registry run by the British Society of Interventional Radiology.
