Fibroid Embolisation: Information, Support, Advice

FEmISA was set up by women whose fibroids were successfully treated by embolisation (sometimes referred to as UAE or UFE). Many of us were keen to avoid hysterectomy and we want to ensure that other women have access to embolisation for the treatment of uterine fibroids by: -

  • informing potential patients/women and GPs and gynaecologists about embolisation and its benefits
  • promoting embolisation as the treatment for uterine fibroids
  • supporting women with fibroids
  • helping and lobbying to ensure that all women have access to this treatment


FEmISA is a UK based not-for-profit organisation. It is run by volunteers and funded by group members. FEmISA does not receive any financial support through advertising, nor benefit from free website hosting or similar sponsorship.
