Uterin fibroids can be treated with Resofus. Fertility is maintained after de procedure.
One out of every four women suffers from uterine fibroids and adenomyosis. These benign growths can be extremely painful and can cause disruptions that severely impact your quality of life. Treatment options vary and most involve drug therapy, or surgery, with attendant pain, hospitalization, and lengthy recovery periods.
Now, there is a completely non-invasive treatment available. Called Resofus, it uses focused ultrasound to destroy the fibroids and provide symptoms relief. These are the same ultrasound waves that are widely used for diagnosing diseases, but in this case they are used for treating fibroids.
The procedure is conducted in an outpatient clinic and requires no incisions or surgery and no hospitalization. That means going home shortly after the treatment and be back to work and normal activities in a day or two without any restrictions.
The focussed ultrasound technique is already being used to treat conditions such as uterine fibroids, adenomyosis, facet joints and osteoid osteoma, but getting the ultrasound to pass through the skull is more difficult.
