Since as far back as I can remember, heavy periods were a part of my life. Even when I was in my teens, it just became normal for me to be in agony once a month with heavy flow accompanied with excruciating pain. My doctor/pediatrician prescribed a pain reliever that was to reduce most of my symptoms, to no avail.
It wasn’t until my early 30’s that it was discovered that I had been suffering from FIBROIDS. At the age of thirty-four, the only option available was a MYOMECTOMY (which is major surgery). For years all seemed well until I entered my forties. A small bulge in my lower abdomen appeared and after an examination, it was discovered the fibroids had returned. Though a hysterectomy was an option, I really didn’t want nor was I interested in another major surgery.
Uterine Artery Embolization was something that I had never heard of but was a less invasive procedure I was willing to consider. After the initial meeting with Dr. Kahn, his explanation and expertise on this non-surgical procedure, it was definitely the direction I wanted to go.
Since my procedure four years ago, I’m pleased to say that I’ve since been fibroid free!! If more women were made aware of uterine fibroid embolization, (less invasive, non-surgical treatment) I believe it would by far, be the more popular option. Not only in regards to preserving the uterus, but also as a way of allowing women to make and have better choices/options for an alternative surgical treatment.
My sincere thanks to Dr. Kahn and his wonderful staff as I am very pleased and satisfied with the results. As a former fibroid sufferer, the Uterine Fibroid Embolization is definitely the non- surgical approach I would HIGHLY recommend!!
My treatment at New England Endovascular Center (NEEC) was a great experience. When I was diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS), I was told by multiple doctors this was not a condition that warranted treatment. I had been struggling with infertility, pelvic pain, burning and fatigue in my legs and urinary frequency and I did not want to suffer with symptoms indefinitely. After some online search, I found treatment for PCS at NEEC. When I called NEEC for an appointment, the support staff picked up right away and scheduled me in a timely manner. I was impressed by how expertly the office was run, even during the Covid pandemic. Dr. Kahn took my symptoms seriously and gave the time to consider my case as well as explained to me how PCS were causing my symptoms. When I came in for the embolization procedure, the facility was beautiful and the nurses and staff were competent as well as kind. The post operative care by the team was also excellent. Over the next few months, my symptoms resolved. The burning and fatigue in my legs and urinary symptoms were completely gone. Two months later, I conceived a pregnancy. I could not be more grateful to Dr. Kahn and his team for believing that PCS is a real and treatable condition, and for helping me recover.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kahn in the past and received the best care possible and also found him to be extremely caring before, during and after my procedures and that nowadays is unusual. I would definitely recommend him if you are in need of his professional expertise and I know you will be happy with your outcome.
Dr. Kahn picked up where other “top” doctors and hospitals gave up. My swelling has gone down significantly in my leg, from an old DVT damaged vein he opened up. The blood travels more easily through a bigger vein, stopping the “pinching” I would feel in my leg. Bicycling again! Thanks, Dr. Kahn!
I had mutual level compression fractures of my entire Lumbar spine L1-5. I suffered from severe pain for 4 months (bed ridden) before I finally got a referral to NEEC. I had to reach out several times to my orthopedic doctor before they ordered an MRI! I was finally referred to Dr.Kahn, he and his team are amazing! I had to have three kyphoplasty procedures. Dr Kahn called on Sunday after each one to check in with me.
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery. There are no screws plates or pins. I experienced an extreme amount of pain relief after each one. I wish more people knew about this amazing procedure done at this outpatient clinic. I have talked to many people who had other surgical interventions for the same (and less severe) spinal condition. Sadly they are still in pain today.
Thank you New England Endovascular Center for taking such good care of me and giving me my life back!!!
This rather simple procedure improved my circulation in both legs. To my surprise, I was able to walk pain free for the first time in years. I now refer to the doctor as “my miracle man” for he truly was an answer to my prayers.
If anyone finds themselves with similar symptoms or a diagnosis of PAD, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Kahn at 413-693-2852 and give him a chance to help and improve your situation.
From a very grateful patient,
Thank you Dr. Kahn and Staff. We couldn’t say that enough! What you did for my father will never be forgotten.
Thank you for always being so kind and patient with us, we truly appreciate it. The care and compassion that your staff showed for us was second to none. They treated us like we were a part of their own families and for that we will forever be grateful. Dr. Kahn stayed open late for us, answered our phone call at 10:30pm and even called to check in with us multiple times throughout the week.
Thank you Dr. Kahn for being a great doctor, but an even better person.
When we moved to the Connecticut shore, we had no idea one of our biggest problems would be locating an interventional radiologist. We went to three different providers and none could do the job for our youngest child (one wouldn’t even try). Granted, this was a difficult job, non-standard in every way. Perfect for Lowell Kahn. He has been responsive to our child’s needs. Our son has a very complicated medical history. Dr. Kahn has worked with many other medical specialists to develop some long term care initiatives for our son. It’s simple. Lowell Kahn gets the job done!
