We offer treatments for the following conditions:
Enlarged Prostate / BPH
By the age of 50, up to 80 percent of women will have uterine ﬁbroids, but they are most commonly found in women in their forties and early ﬁfties. Those who are overweight have a two to three-time higher risk of getting ﬁbroids. They are muscular tumors that are almost always benign and vary in size, shape and number. While there is some uncertainty as to what causes ﬁbroids, research suggests hormones and family history contribute to their growth. The eﬀect of hormones during pregnancy increase the size and rate of growth; the loss of hormones during menopause appear to shrink or stop their growth.
Many women don’t even know they have them. But those with symptoms ﬁnd them to be life altering. CiC oﬀers minimally invasive treatments that block the artery feeding the tumor, the tumor shrinks and many go away over time.
Pelvic Venous Insuﬃciency
Chronic pelvic pain is more common than you may know. About 30% of all women will live with pain in their lower abdomen that lasts for more than six months. While there can be many causes, it may be pelvic venous insuﬃciency. It occurs when varicose veins form in the pelvic region. In many cases, it may be overlooked because the veins may not be visible.
The most successful treatment now available is pelvic vein embolization (PVE). PVE is a minimally invasive procedure. It blocks oﬀ the blood supply to the veins which may be causing the pain. PVE is providing signiﬁcant improvement in relieving, and in many cases, eliminating the symptoms.
