Procedure for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

A common problem faced by women beyond their childbearing years is heavy menstrual bleeding. The bleeding is either prolonged or heavier than normal. This can cause anemia, lethargy, and generally be disruptive of one’s life. These dysfunctional periods are sometimes associated with lower abdominal discomfort. The traditional treatment options have been hormone therapy, Dilation and Curettage, or hysterectomy.

A wonderful option is a Novasure endometrial ablation procedure where, following a local anesthetic, a devise is placed within the uterus for 90 seconds. This simple and safe procedure will either eliminate or markedly reduce bleeding in 95% of patients. Recovery is rapid with patients generally back to work the next day.

Permanent Birth Control

The traditional sterilization procedures done when couples have completed their childbearing are either tubal ligation or vasectomy. The Essure procedure is a minimally invasive option for female sterilization. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia and generally takes less than ten minutes. A small flexible coil is placed into each fallopian tube. The procedure is 99.7% effective. There are no incisions; recovery is much faster and associated with much less post-operative discomfort.
