Many people know of Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers because our expertise in interventional oncology has led to us being considered some of the best liver cancer doctors in Phoenix, and our multiple facilities are recognized as some of the best cancer treatment centers in Arizona. But there are other areas of health care that Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers that our physicians are involved in, and one of the most exciting is the area of women’s health. The cutting-edge, minimally-invasive interventional radiology (IR) procedures that we specialize in for the treatment of cancer are equally applicable to many common health problems that affect women.
What types of women’s health treatments does Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers specialize in?
One of the most important women’s health issues we focus on is the treatment of uterine fibroids – growths that develop in the wall of the uterus that are non-cancerous, but can cause many unpleasant symptoms, including heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and swelling of the abdomen. A minimally-invasive IR procedure that we specialize in called Uterine Artery Embolization can be quite effective in closing arteries that give rise to these fibroids, and thus the pain and discomfort they cause. We are considered some of the best physicians in the area at offering uterine fibroid treatment options in Phoenix.
Another area of women’s health that we specialize in is infertility, in particular blockages of the Fallopian tubes. This condition can often be corrected with a minimally-invasive IR procedure called Fallopian Tube Recanalization.
Last – but certainly not “least” because an estimated one-third of American women suffer from the constant pain of it – is pelvic congestion syndrome. To treat this condition we offer an IR procedure that can locate and eliminate the abnormally dilated blood vessels that cause the pain. These swollen vessels – called ovarian vein or pelvic varices – are not easily located during an external examination, but can often be found and treated using IR techniques.
At Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers, we are proud of our contributions to women’s health
