fibroids - alternative to hysterectomy?

I've read on the internet of a non-invasive procedure called "fibroid embolisation" - is this available in SA? Hysterectomy is just such major surgery and with the possible associated complications, this procedure sounds like a far better alternative. Where can it be done???

There are a one or two doctors who do this. It depends on where you live. Remember though that when a procedure is new and there is little experience with it, the results may not be so good.
