Dear Dr. del Junco Jr,
|Dr. del Junco Jr. (Doctor)||
I am also not a proponant of leaving degenerating tumors in the body. UAE only blocks the blood supply to the tissue, but does not remove the actual tumor. I had to treat one UAE patient 3 months after her procedure for a severly infected and necrotic uterus-the blood supply to the uterine muscle had been disrupted, not just the tumor, and part of her uterus decayed. This patient required an emergent partial hysterectomy.
Our FAS program, safely and effectively removes as many tumors as possible without these potentially serious side effects.
