Pete Stratil, MD discusses uterine fibroid embolization

Pete Stratil, MD, discusses uterine fibroids and how the skilled team at RIA Endovascular can help women who suffer from fibroids find relief. Uterine fibroid embolization is used as an alternative to surgery to treat uterine fibroids and minimize their symptoms. Women may choose fibroid embolization over surgery for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Significantly shorter recovery period
  • Lower complication rate
  • Minimal or no scarring
  • Potentially preserve fertility
  • Can’t or don’t want to receive a blood transfusion, which may be necessary during surgery
  • Can’t receive general anesthesia

If you have any questions, please call the RIA Interventional Suite at 720-493-3406.
