Doctor Michelle Maneevese at Access Vascular Health Offers Non-Surgical Fibroid Treatment in Houston, TX

Houston, TX: Michelle Maneevese, MD at Access Vascular Health performs non-surgical fibroid treatment for patients with uterine fibroids, also referred to as leiomyomas. The condition affects 20-50% of women and is synonymous with heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, genitourinary symptoms, infertility, and pelvic pressure. But in some cases, the uterine fibroid may not exhibit any signs.

As a technology-driven center, Access Vascular Health Houston, recommends a detailed diagnosis before the treatment. Some factors considered in the diagnosis include symptoms and medical history. The medical professionals also use diagnostic imaging such as pelvic ultrasound, MRI, and computerized tomography (CT) to ascertain whether the patient has leiomyomas. In other cases, the professional may recommend hysterosalpingography, a special x-ray technique that uses special dyes to check whether fibroids are blocking the patient’s fallopian tubes.

While fibroid treatments look into the size, symptoms, age, medical history, patient preference, and reproductive goals, uterine artery embolization (UAE) is minimally invasive and, therefore, highly recommended. Unlike hysterectomy and myomectomy, which involve surgically excising fibroids under anesthesia, Access Vascular Health uses wires and catheters under direct image guidance to successfully treat the condition.

Access Vascular Health: Michelle Maneevese, MD, offers peripheral arterial disease (PAD) treatment in Houston. The condition, which has symptoms such as pain and cramping, throbbing legs, and swellings (among others), is caused by plaque blocks on the arteries. The blocking substance may be plaque, calcium, sticky substance (made of fat), and blood. To know the severity of PAD, Dr. Maneevese uses different non-invasive tactics.

The doctor injects a special dye through the IV to locate the diseased areas. Then through X-rays, she establishes the severity of the condition and the areas that need treatment. Thanks to technology and the doctor’s experience, opening the vessels and restoring blood flow is fast, and patients can return home to rest on the same day. Like other medical procedures the center provides, patients can book an appointment with Dr. Maneevese before visiting the center — via the website.

The clinic also offers prostate artery embolization (PAE). The treatment is ideal for patients with symptoms such as frequent urination, inability to urinate, incontinence, increased urgency to urinate, and weak urine stream (among others). Besides providing the PAE treatment, the interventional vascular radiologist has assisted patients with other related conditions, such as erectile dysfunction.

The clinic performs the PAE procedure entirely through an IV — regardless of detectable symptoms. Using X-Rays, the doctor finds the blood vessels feeding the prostate and injects the microscopic beads to cut the blood flow. And considering it is an outpatient procedure, they can return home to rest on the same day.
