Uterine fibroids are benign growths in the uterus that affect more than 30% of women of childbearing age. Symptomatic women suffer from extensive and prolonged menstrual bleeding, anaemia, pain, pressure and often infertility. Existing treatment options include hysterectomy, myomectomy and uterine artery embolization that are invasive and minimally invasive, involving hospitalization and several weeks of recovery time. ExAblate is an outpatient procedure and patients return home the same day and to work within one to two days.
