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 phone consultation is arranged with Dr Eisen Liang. You’ll discuss assessment of your suitability for procedures including UFE and UAE. During your 25 minutes, you’ll have time to ask him any questions. He’ll then dictate a letter to your GP or gynaecologist.
Previous correspondence and scan reports are incredibly useful in determining the best treatment option for you. Please send these to us prior to your phone consultation. Please note phone consultations are not Medicare rebatable.
If you’re deemed potentially suitable for one of Dr Liang’s procedures, you’ll need a MRI with one of our preferred imaging providers.
This MRI usually takes place in Sydney on the same day as the final assessment and consent consultation with Dr Liang. Your procedure is then arranged the following day.
You’ll need to spend 1 – 2 nights in hospital, before travelling home from days 2 – 4, depending on your recovery. Usual follow-ups with Dr Liang take place at three months (over the phone) and six months (in person) after your progress MRI.
