Understanding Uterine Fibroids         

Uterine fibroids are prevalent noncancerous growths within the uterine walls. While some women experience no symptoms, fibroids can cause a range of challenges, including heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and difficulty getting pregnant. At Emirates Hospitals Group, we offer a comprehensive range of treatment options to address your specific concerns and empower you to regain control of your health.

Fibroid Symptoms Treatment

Symptoms Indicating the Need for the Procedure

Fibroids can cause a range of symptoms that necessitate medical intervention. These include:

  • Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Frequent urination or difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Constipation
  • Backache or leg pains
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Enlargement of the lower abdomen

Women experiencing these symptoms should seek consultation at the Fibroids Clinic for appropriate evaluation and treatment options.

Diagnosis of the Condition

Diagnosing uterine fibroids involves a thorough medical history, physical examination, and advanced imaging techniques:

  1. Pelvic Examination: Initial assessment to feel for abnormalities in the shape of the uterus.
  2. Ultrasound: A non-invasive imaging test to visualize the fibroids, determining their size and location.
  3. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Provides detailed images of fibroids, especially for larger or multiple fibroids, and helps in planning treatment strategies.
  4. Hysterosonography: Saline infusion ultrasound to get a clearer picture of submucosal fibroids.
  5. Hysteroscopy: Insertion of a small telescope through the cervix to examine the inside of the uterus, often used in conjunction with treatment.
  6. Laparoscopy: A minimally invasive procedure where a camera is inserted into the abdomen to view fibroids and surrounding organs.

Treatment Options

At Emirates Hospitals Group, the treatment of uterine fibroids varies based on the size, location, and severity of the fibroids, as well as the patient’s overall health and fertility desires. The primary procedures include:

  1. Minimally Invasive Surgery:
    • Laparoscopic Myomectomy: This minimally invasive procedure involves small incisions in the abdomen through which a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube with a camera) and surgical instruments are inserted to remove fibroids while preserving the uterus.
    • Hysteroscopic Myomectomy: This procedure is performed through the vagina and cervix using a hysteroscope (a thin, lighted tube) to remove submucosal fibroids from the inner wall of the uterus without any external incisions.
    • Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE): This non-surgical procedure involves injecting small particles into the arteries supplying the fibroids, blocking their blood flow and causing them to shrink.
  2. Hysterectomy: Complete removal of the uterus, recommended for severe cases where other treatments have failed or are not feasible.
  3. Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE): This non-surgical approach uses a catheter inserted through the groin to block blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to shrink. UFE is a minimally invasive option for women who wish to preserve their uterus but no longer desire pregnancy.

With advanced medical technology and a patient-centric approach, Emirates Hospitals Group Fibroids Clinic empowers women to manage their fibroids effectively and reclaim their well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Uterine fibroids are diagnosed through a combination of medical history, physical examination, and advanced imaging techniques. These include pelvic ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), hysterosonography (saline infusion ultrasound), hysteroscopy, and laparoscopy. Our clinic uses these methods to accurately assess the size, location, and number of fibroids for effective treatment planning.

Women experiencing symptoms such as heavy or prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pain or pressure, frequent urination, constipation, back or leg pain, pain during intercourse, or infertility should seek evaluation at the Fibroids Clinic. These symptoms can significantly impact quality of life and may indicate the need for medical or surgical intervention.

Minimally invasive procedures for fibroid treatment, such as laparoscopic myomectomy, hysteroscopic myomectomy, and uterine fibroid embolization, offer several advantages. These include reduced pain, shorter recovery times, minimal scarring, and lower risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery.

The recovery process varies depending on the type of treatment received. For minimally invasive procedures like laparoscopic or hysteroscopic myomectomy and UFE, recovery is generally quicker, with most patients returning to normal activities within 1-2 weeks. Traditional surgical options may require a longer recovery period, typically 4-6 weeks. Follow-up care includes monitoring for any recurrence of symptoms and ensuring overall health and well-being.
