Uterine Fibroid Treatment
You may be suffering from the signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids, including:
- Pelvic pressure or pain
- Frequent urination
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Backache or leg pains
You are not alone.
Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors among women. The discomfort you often feel when living with uterine fibroids may keep you from your favorite activities, which can leave you feeling isolated.
Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. The most common approach is for the surgeon to access and remove the uterus via an abdominal incision. The surgery typically requires a multi-day hospital stay and lengthy home recovery.
Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. There are multiple surgical approaches to removing the fibroids. Since the underlying cause of the fibroids is not addressed, fibroids can return over time.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Embolization is a non-surgical approach to treating uterine fibroids. Via a small incision in the groin area, the physician locates and blocks the blood supply that nourishes the fibroids. The result is reduced blood supply to the uterine fibroids so that they shrink and cause fewer symptoms.
MagellanTM Robotic System

- Access: Magellan is inserted through a small incision near your groin.
- Maneuverability: Your doctor uses Magellan to steer a catheter and guide wires through your complex anatomy.
- Accuracy: Magellan helps your doctor reach the target and complete your procedure.
Women, just like you have said yes to Magellan because, in many cases, Magellan has the potential to deliver a number of possible benefits when compared to the surgical options, including:
- Less pain
