Dr. LeBlang recalls if the Magnetic Resonance (MR) guided Focused Ultrasound for uterine fibroids is an in-patient or out-patient procedure.
The MR guided Focused Ultrasound procedure is an out-patient procedure. The patients come about a half an hour before their procedure to be prepped. The procedure takes anywhere between two to four hours, and then they are usually discharged within an hour after the procedure.
