Neither method will guarantee that they won't come back. Few people do uterine artery embolisation. The advantage of this is that there is no operation. There is more experience with surgical removal, but this does mean that you have an operation. I would suggest that you check with your doctor what the experience of both methods is in your area. If someone has only done 5 uterine artery embolisations, for example, it might be better to consider surgery.
