Women's Health

Women with unusual menstrual symptoms may suffer from more serious vascular conditions in their pelvic area. These women are often told that a hysterectomy is their only solution, but at Vein and Vascular Centers of Philadelphia at American Access Care, we have uterus-sparing options that may work better for you. Our minimally invasive treatment for fibroids is a 1 hour outpatient procedure with a return to normal activities within 8-14 days.

Women's Health

We offer an array of treatment options for women.


What We Offer…


Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive treatment that safely and effectively shrinks fibroids and eliminates the unpleasant symptoms they cause - all without the need for surgery. You can also avoid an overnight stay in the hospital. At Vein and Vascular Centers of Philadelphia at American Access Care, UFEs are performed on an outpatient basis and offer a faster recovery time than more invasive hysterectomies and myomectomies.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome Treatment

Pelvic congestion syndrome is associated with the presence of ovarian and pelvic varicose veins. As with varicose veins in the legs, the valves in the veins that help return blood to the heart become weakened and don't close properly. This allows blood to flow backwards and pool in the vein, causing pressure and making the veins bulge. In the pelvis, varicose veins can cause pain and affect the uterus, ovaries, and vulva. Up to 15 percent of women, generally between the ages of 20 and 50, have varicose veins in the pelvis, although not all experience symptoms. We treat symptomatic pelvic congestion syndrome with an embolization technique. This is a minimally invasive method to block the abnormal blood flow by use of synthetic platinum fibered coils to seal the faulty, enlarged vein. Symptom relief is typically seen within two weeks.
