Physicians at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) are enhancing the quality of life for women battling uterine fibroids, which are benign tumors of the uterus, which can cause heavy bleeding, pain, and can lead to other complications.  Utilizing Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery, NJMS physicians provide women with a safe and effective solution.

UFE harnesses advanced imaging and intervention radiology techniques, ensures a quick and safe procedure, enables same-day patient release, and reduces recovery time.  

In addition to advancing medical techniques, physicians at Rutgers NJMS are committed to addressing healthcare disparities surrounding uterine fibroids. Their focus is to not only understand but to also bridge gaps in the underserved minority community, which predominantly serves African-American and Hispanic patients, who disproportionately suffer from this condition.
