- Novasure: Endometrial ablation
This is an office procedure to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in the pre-menopausal woman. This will replace the need for hormones or major surgery to control the heavy bleeding. Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) occurs in up to 1 in 5 women. Endometrial ablation with Novasure will lessen the monthly bleeding and many women will have no bleeding altogether. Bleeding, cramping and PMS are minimized after this procedure. The ablation procedure takes less than 90 seconds and is performed under local anesthesia in our office. <www.novasure.com>
