85% to 95% of patients say they are very satisfied after having their UFE procedure. A lot of that satisfaction is attributed to well-communicated expectations about the procedure and symptoms between the doctor and patient. Dr. Suzanne Slonim agreed with this statistic concerning her own patients:
“Nearly invariably, yes they are. The patients are usually very satisfied. I think a lot of it is managing expectations. I go through very specifically how the procedure’s going to go, what they’re going to feel, what they’re going to experience and how long the symptoms are going to last and what to expect after the procedure.
So, most women, if you look nationwide through the literature, 85-95% of women are satisfied with the procedure.”
