About

Bio

I am Dr. Kevin L. Carson MD, CAQ (Certificate of Advance Qualifications). I received my medical degree the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, and completed my Interventional Radiology training at Columbia University in New York. I participated in research at the National Institute of Health in Washington DC and have been the Chief of Interventional Radiology at multiple Georgia hospitals. I am now the president of the Georgia Vascular Institute, and an adjunct professor at the Morehouse School of Medicine. I am on staff at multiple Georgia hospitals including the Atlanta Medical Center. I have lectured and educated on the diagnosis and treatment of uterine fibroids for almost two decades. My commitment to the treatment and education of women suffering from uterine fibroids began as a personal experience. Unfortunately several of the women in my family have suffered from the problems of uterine fibroids. I have one family member who complained of heavy bleeding and tiredness and another family member who was unable to become pregnant. I was surprised to learn that these issues were as a result of uterine fibroids. Because fibroids were not one of the dangerous malignant cancers of the uterus they were not diagnosed or treated with the same urgency in medical practices or hospitals. However the problems of uterine fibroids can be as devastating to a women’s quality of life as any treatable cancer. The women suffer from depression, fatigue, heavy bleeding, loss of appetite, weight gain, pain and many other problems. They were also missing important life events, forced to carry extra clothing, and wear an uncomfortable amount of padding. At the time there were only a few treatments for uterine fibroids. The major treatments at the time were the surgical removal of the uterus, surgical removal of the fibroids, or hormone therapy. Although these are great procedures for some women, these treatments also caused new problems. This included a long recuperation time, ugly scarring, hot flashes and moodiness. When I first learned of the non-surgical treatment of uterine fibroid embolization I couldn’t have been more excited. Here was a treatment that would allow women to return back to their lives in a shorter amount of time, cause less scarring and did not cause the problems of extra hormones. I became one of the first doctors to perform a uterine fibroid embolization procedure in the Southern Crescent. I saw patients and family members began to enjoy an truly increased quality of life. My partner and I, Dr. Sendhil Subramanian have performed hundreds of uterine fibroid embolizations procedures since that time and established the Georgia Vascular Institute in downtown Atlanta. We have committed ourselves to the care of women who suffer from fibroids and have built the Institute with them in mind. We use the latest equipment and technology at our center to increase the effectiveness of the procedure. We have also hired the best technologists and nurses to help us care for our patients. We enjoy close relationships with multiple OB/GYN practices to help consult with us on unusual cases and help with any potential complications. We would love the opportunity to tell you more about our service and help you get back to your life.

Yes: yes you can still become pregnant after a UFE. The procedure will decrease you ability to become pregnant a small amount according to some literature.

Ovarian torsion: A cyst can cause torsion of the ovary. This may be intermittent and resolve afterwards. There is also a danger of ovarian infarction. It is important to see a doctor ASAP.
