Learn More About Sonata Treatment:
At FibroidOne, we offer a multidisciplinary team of experts for women seeking fibroid care that’s personalized to their needs. We’re able to provide various treatments for your fibroid care using the latest technology, and at our practice, we’re able to offer Sonata treatment. Unlike most treatments which are either invasive or minimally invasive, sonata treatment is a non-invasive solution that reduces fibroid symptoms and can address multiple fibroid types, sizes, and locations and works similarly to uterine fibroid embolization.
UFE vs. Sonata Treatment For Fibroids:
For women with uterine fibroids, experiencing symptoms of constant pain and pressure can be relieved through the power of radiofrequency. When looking into options for radiofrequency treatment, both the Sonata treatment and UFE can easily be confused due to their similarities. However, both of these treatments operate on different methods, which will be detailed down below:
Sonata Treatment: Sonata treatment works without any incisions and can be used to treat symptom-causing uterine fibroids. Sonata treatment uses an intrauterine ultrasound device to target the fibroids through radiofrequency energy, and this treatment helps reduce the size of the fibroid and its symptoms. The ultrasound device works through the uterus and treats the fibroids inside the uterus and thus requires no incisions in the abdomen, leading to faster recovery.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization: Unlike the Sonata treatment, which doesn’t require incisions, UFE is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to shrink down the fibroids and reduce symptoms. The radiofrequency device used to perform this procedure is inserted into a small incision in the abdomen instead of the uterus and leaves behind minimal scarring.
Both of these treatments use radiography to shrink the fibroids and reduce symptoms over time. These treatments can be used to treat different types of fibroids. Sonata treatment is most often used to treat fibroids along and inside the uterine wall, including intramural and submucosal fibroids, while uterine fibroid embolization can more effectively treat subserosal and pedunculated fibroids. However, both of these treatments can treat most types of fibroids in varying degrees, so it’s important to speak with your fibroid specialist about your options.
How Does Sonata Treatment For Fibroids Work?
The Sonata treatment is performed under anesthesia, and during this procedure, our fibroid specialists will use a miniature high-resolution ultrasound tip to locate the fibroids, and through the Sonata handpiece device, then target the fibroids through the uterus using radiofrequency energy and shrink the fibroid overtime. For those who choose the Sonata treatment, there are numerous benefits, especially for those who are ineligible for other treatments such as myomectomies and hysterectomies. For women, the Sonata treatment brings many benefits, including:
- Shorter Outpatient Stay
- No Incisions or Scarring
- Faster Recovery
The Sonata treatment is recommended for those who experience uncomfortable symptoms with fibroids, including heavy, painful periods, pelvic pain, consistent pressure, frequent urination, lower back pain, and pain during intercourse. If you are experiencing any of these fibroid symptoms and want to learn more about radiofrequency treatment for fibroids, then our clinic can provide you with the answers you need for pelvic pain relief.
