Ivana: i love to walk. it really feels great. i’m a teacher. sometimes i work with the preschoolers or first grade, and you want to kind of be on their level, when you’re sitting down. So I wasn’t able to sit down a lot of times. And I noticed a lot of bloating. My body just wasn’t functioning the way that it normally was. Last year the noticed that I had fibroids that were the size of lemons. I was in pain a lot. I couldn’t wear anything that buttoned. It literally looked like I was nine months pregnant. I was embarrassed. I sought.
Medical advice from my obgyn about other options other than a hysterectomy. and he referred me to Bagla. Bagla: Ivana, when she sought us out to have uterine fibroid embolization and it was performed robotically, she was ecstatic and knew that she was undergoing a procedure that would offer her a chance to really change her life. With traditional surgery, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy, there is an open incision, and most women are not ecstatic.
About having a large incision in the lower part of their abdomen, the scar, the potential for bleeding, or infections. With fibroid embolization as a whole, that procedure can be performed minimally invasively on an outpatient basis sometimes, and just through a simple needle hole. What’s unique about the Magellan System is its ability to get to both right and left uterine artery, which is critical for the procedure. It offers support for our microcatheter to then deliver the embolic material right into the correct place within.
