Uterine fibroids/Pelvic Pain

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors in the uterus that can cause pelvic pain, excessive menstral bleeding, abdominal enlargement, and anemia (tiredness). Pelvic pain can also be related to venous disease.

Varicose Veins in Mothers

Varicose veins are pigmented, enlarged or deformed superficial veins that can worsen during and after pregnancy.  In severe cases, they can cause blackening of the skin, pain, swelling, and ulcers.

Other treatments

Non-invasive treatments for cancer and vascular disease including tumor biopsy, breast biopsy, cancer treatments, leg pain, and blood clots.

What makes us unique?

Most fibroid treatments are performed in a hospital or an academic institution.
Dr. Zhang is able to bring the highest academic expertise and skills to a boutique concierge
outpatient environment. This ensures patients safety and satisfaction, quick access to experts for appointments, especially in a post
COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

Our Background

Our goal is to focus on patient needs.

Every year, close to 300,000 hysterectomies are performed to treat fibroids; however, many hysterectomies are considered medically unnecessary. In the U.S., over 20 percent of women believe a hysterectomy is the only way to treat their fibroid symptoms.

Today, we work hard to provide a personalized experience for all patients. We want you to have everything you need to make the best decision for you. This is why Dr. Zhang will meet with you to answer questions, discuss options, and create a specialized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. 

 

What We Do

We provide the best in non-surgical fibroid treatment using Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). UFE is an FDA-approved treatment recommended by American College of Gynecology as a first line treatment.  In our outpatient fibroid centers, UFE allows our patients to return home the same day 2 hours after the procedure and resume their daily activities between two to seven days following treatment. 

During this simple almost painless treatment, the doctor will insert a tiny needle into the blood vessels in the upper thigh.  The doctor will then guide a millimetre thin catheter to the arteries supplying blood to the fibroid. Then, small particles will be injected through the catheter and block blood flow to the fibroid, causing it to shrivel and die.  After this 30 min procedure, we will observe your rest for 2 hours before you going back to your home to finish your recovery.  Our providers are on call 24/7 after the procedure, if you have questions or concerns. 

Helping Patients Find Hope

There’s hope for a life without the pain and inconvenience of fibroid symptoms, and it doesn’t have to involve surgery. We are dedicated to helping patients like you discover hope for a happier and healthier life.

Uterine fibroids are tumors in the uterus that are benign and almost never turn into cancer. About 50% women in their reproductive have them. Some have no symptoms but others have severe symptoms as mentioned above. Just like any tumor, they can grow larger and cause worsening pain and bleeding.

It is a non invasive technique where a small needle/catheter is introduced into an artery in the groin. Then it is navigated to the fibroids to inject and block the arteries feeding the fibroids. Fibroids will then die within months and fibroid symptoms will subside.

1. Infertility. Many websites will tell you that embolization can cause infertility.
There were cases of infertility 20 years ago when the technology was still maturing. Data from the last 10 years have shown that side effects of infertility is much lower than other options of treating fibroids. In fact, data further confirms that fibroid embolization does not cause infertility.
2. Recurrence. Some physicians and articles will suggest that fibroids will grow back after embolization.
Chances of fibroids growing back in 2 years is 80 percent after surgical options such as Myomectomy.
Chances of fibroids growing back in 2 years is only 10 percent for fibroid embolization.
