1. Call to schedule a consultation: During your consultation you will be able to ask questions and be answered by a medical professional. This step will help you make an informed decision on whether embolization or hysterectomy is the right choice for you. Call 727-386-9981
  2. Day of consultation: Please arrive 20 minutes before your appointment to fill out necessary paperwork and a health questionnaire. Bring any patient history such as (pap smear results, ultrasound or MRI imaging and notes from your primary care doctor or gynecologist). During your consultation you will be able to ask questions plus get knowledgeable information to help you make an informed and educated decision on what procedure works best for you on treating your fibroids.
  3. Return for MRI: Once you have decided to continue with the fibroid embolization, you will return for an MRI if you have not already had one. The test will be performed here in our office. An MRI will provide us with better image quality and enable us to perform the fibroid embolization. 
  4. The day of your procedure: Please arrive 20 minutes before your appointment time to fill out additional paperwork and to go over simple instructions for your return home. Fibroid Embolization is a same day procedure, so you will be returning home that day with only a few days of down time. Please be sure to have someone with you. This person will be given a prescription for pain management as you will have minimal cramping and discomfort for a few days.
