- Transcervical fibroid ablation—treats fibroids from inside the uterus using radiofrequency heat instead of incisions
- Endometrial ablation—destroys the lining of the uterus to help stop heavy bleeding
- Uterine fibroid embolization—an interventional radiology procedure that treats all your fibroids at once by blocking blood flow, which causes them to shrink
- Myomectomy—surgically removes some fibroids and is commonly used in women who want to preserve fertility
- Hysterectomy—removes the uterus through traditional and minimally invasive surgical options
