No it is not. Coiling of ovarian veins is at least another method which is minimally invasive.

You should be evaluated and treated by a board certified interventional Radioligist who specializes in treating PCS. Often the treatment is stenting.

No. The least invasive treatment would be to have an interventional radiologist. close down the abnormal veins causing the problem.

Hysterectomy usually is not the answer to a problem with the pelvic veins. Pelvic congestion syndrome often persists in spite of hysterectomy because the uterus in not the casue of pelvic congestion.
