About the Center

It is the mission of the Hampton Roads Center for Fibroid Embolization to be the premier provider of Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) in Eastern Virginia, committed to excellence in the delivery of this treatment, and the satisfaction of its' patients and referring physicians.

History of UFE at the Center
The Center was founded in January, 2000 to promote the development of UFE in Hampton Roads, VA by concentrating expertise and resources. Dr. Cockerill performed the first UFE in Hampton Roads in July of 1998. Since then many other women have been successfully treated. In July 2008 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of UFE. Read more about it.

At the Center we are committed to providing superior quality, personalized care for each and every patient we see. We will partner with you, and your gynecologist, to determine the best means of treating your problematic fibroids. For those who choose UFE we will walk you through our Five Step Process. Not all patients will be appropriate candidates for UFE and will be directed toward other therapies.

The Initial Consultation will occur at one of our three offices:

  • The main office is in Norfolk in the DePaul Medical Building, 110 Kingsley Lane, Suite 305. This is the freestanding building beside the Hospital. Visitor parking is available in the first lot on the left. Directions/Map.
  • Sentara Princess Anne Hospital Office: Present to the Diagnostic Services Dept, 1st floor just down from the main entrance. Directions/Parking.
  • Virginia Beach General Hospital Office: Enter the Patient Entrance and report directly to the Radiology Dept where you will check in and register. You do not need to stop at Patient Registration as you enter. Directions/Parking.
  • The Peninsula office is in the Radiology Department at Mary Immaculate Hospital. Report directly to the Radiology Department. Directions/Map.

If you are coming from outside the Hampton Roads area the Initial Consultation can usually be handled by phone. Our staff can help you with lodging arrangements for after the procedure.
