Out of Region Patients
Sydney Fibroid Clinic treats patients from all over Sydney, regional NSW and interstate. If you are far away and hoping to avoid hysterectomy, we do offer a fast-track program for out of region patient to minimise travelling.
Sydney Fibroid Clinic’s Dr Eisen Liang normally sees women for an initial consultation to review past treatments and existing imaging. He then discusses various treatment options.
If a woman chooses UFE or UAE as her preferred treatment option, a MRI will be arranged to check exact locations, cellularity and vascularity of fibroids or to confirm adenomyosis. This MRI is then reviewed at the second consultation. If the woman is a suitable candidate for UFE or UAE, the procedure is discussed, then consented and scheduled.
To assist women travelling from interstate, we offer our fast-track program.
You’re suitable for Sydney Fibroid Clinic’s fast-track program if:
- You have already seen by a gynaecologist who recommended UFE /UAE, or
- You have already been treated by GPs or gynaecologists, but have failed conservative treatments
- You prefer one single pre-procedure consult
- You have been through our website
- You have no MRI issues (no metallic implants, pacemakers, or contrast allergy)
How it Works
Our fast-track program facilitates streamlined assessment and treatment for women who need to travel to us. Our aim is to make the process easy and convenient for you.
An initial video consultation is arranged with Dr Eisen Liang. We will discuss assessment of your suitability for the procedures. To make the best use of the 25 min time with Dr Liang, make sure you have send back your History Form, previous correspondence, imaging report, and link to access your imaging on-line. Please send these to us SAP prior to your video consultation.
We prefer MRI for a complete assessment of your uterus. For fibroids, we need to make sure there are no suspicious features and the locations are suitable for UFE. For adenomyosis, we want to confirm the diagnosis and check the extent of the disease.
We prefer the MRI to be done by one of our regular experienced service providers ( a few selected PRP Imaging centres in Sydney).
We can give you the MRI referral so that you can pre-book your MRI for soon after you arrive in Sydney, before seeing Dr Liang.
If you wish to have your MRI done locally, please contact us for a referral and we will send you our special requirements ( scanning and reporting protocol). You will need to check with your local imaging centre if they can fulfil our requirement with confidence, and if they can email us the link to view your images on-line. It is best done with a nation wide imaging provider like I-Med imaging.
If you’re deemed potentially suitable for one of Dr Liang’s procedures, and you have not had your MRI, then pre-book your MRI in Sydney for the day you arrive. MRI should be done in the morning if you are seeing Dr Liang on the same day for the final assessment and pre-procedure consent. Your procedure can be pre-scheduled prior to your travel arrangement to Sydney.
You’ll need to spend 1 – 2 nights in hospital, then travel back home on day 3 or 4 , depending on your recovery. We will touch base with you at 3 months. If you are doing well, we will see you after your progress MRI at 6 months.
