So many women suffer with Uterine Fibroids. It's estimated to affect 20-50% of women of childbearing age. It impacts almost every aspect of their lives.
Previously, treatment has often been invasive, painful surgery.
However, there is a bright light on the horizon.
Uterine-Fibroids promotes MRI guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery (MRgFUS) as a preferable treatment for uterine fibroids and as a replacement for hysterectomy.
MRgFUS, treats uterine fibroids non-invasively in an out patient setting without the need for general anesthesia or hospitalization, greatly reducing recovery time and the risks of side effects.
Insightec is the developer of ExAblate One for women's health and ExAblate OR (the non-invasive operating room), MRI guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery, the cutting edge of fibroid treatment without cutting.
