DALLAS and HOUSTON, TEXAS (August 2022): Fibroid Institute Dallas, a revolutionary medical practice providing non-surgical fibroid treatment to women with uterine fibroids, is pleased to announce addition of the name Fibroid Institute Texas. With additional locations throughout the Dallas area plus new Houston locations, more women in Texas will have access to life-changing, minimally invasive fibroid treatment.
How Patients Benefit
Fibroid Institute gains an increased number of locations for reaching women suffering from fibroid symptoms. In North Texas, patients can visit Fibroid Institute Dallas in Addison, Arlington, Dallas, Duncanville, McKinney, Mesquite, and Sherman. In South Texas, Fibroid Institute Houston will provide consultations for patients from Sugar Land, Katy, and Clear Lake.
Founder and Medical Director Dr. Suzanne Slonim of Fibroid Institute says, “By expanding to other Texas cities, we are given the opportunity to reach more women suffering from fibroid symptoms. Too many women in Texas are not aware of uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) and other fibroid treatments. Fibroid pain should not be normalized, and women throughout Texas need to know they have options.”
Both Fibroid Institute Dallas and Fibroid Institute Houston will continue to provide the personalized, concierge patient care that the 5-star reviewed medical practice is known for. Patients will not need to travel as far for non-surgical fibroid treatment. Many more women in Texas will benefit from the uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) procedure performed by experienced, highly skilled specialists at Fibroid Institute.
About Uterine Fibroids and UFE
Medical Director Dr. Suzanne Slonim founded Fibroid Institute Dallas in 2016 out of concern for the high incidence of surgeries to treat uterine fibroids. The practice, now adding Fibroid Institute Houston in South Texas, is dedicated to expanding access to a minimally invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) and educating women about fibroid treatment options.
Uterine fibroids are abnormal growths in the uterus that affect three out of four women, most often between the ages of 30 and 50. Although usually benign, fibroids may lead to life-altering symptoms, such as severe pelvic pain and heavy periods. Fibroids can also cause abdominal bloating, urinary frequency, back pain, and reproductive dysfunction including miscarriage, early labor, and infertility. They are often discovered during routine health testing.
UFE utilizes state-of-the-art techniques to shrink fibroids and alleviate fibroid symptoms. With image-guided technology, the experienced interventional radiologists at Fibroid Institute guide a catheter through the radial artery at the wrist to the blood vessels of the fibroids. Microscopic medical grade particles are introduced through the catheter to block off the blood flow, causing the fibroids to shrink and eventually die while preserving the uterus. It is a safe, fast, and minimally invasive procedure, often providing an alternative to hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) or myomectomy (surgical removal of the fibroids). Because it is less invasive and not surgical, recovery time is much shorter than traditional fibroid surgery. Covered by most insurance plans, the success rate for the procedure is over 90%.
Gynecologists historically were reluctant to recommend UFE because of post-procedure pain. However, Fibroid Institute has become the preferred referral partner for many physicians including gynecologists, internists, hematologists, general practitioners, wellness doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists. Dr. Slonim developed a concierge practice with a unique approach in treatment and pain management, so patients experience little discomfort as the fibroids shrink. Dr. Slonim says, “I’m passionate about helping women avoid surgery if they can,” she says. “I treat every patient as if she were my sister. I feel honored that women are willing to share their concerns with me.”
