Ablation Procedures

If you have very heavy periods, you may find relief through an endometrial ablation, a procedure that scars the lining of the uterus. One option for this procedure is NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation.

What is NovaSure Endometrial Ablation?

Novasure is a quick, safe and simple procedure that can be effective in lightening or stopping your periods, often without the need for hormones or hysterectomy. It works by scarring the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium, with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy.

  • No pills. No hormonal side effects.
  • For 77.7% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped.
  • NovaSure is a one-time, five-minute procedure that often can be done in our office.

How the NovaSure procedure works

Endometrial Ablation Step 1

Step 1

Your doctor opens your cervix (the opening to your uterus) slightly, inserts a slender wand and extends a triangular-shaped netted device into your uterus.

Endometrial Ablation Step 2

Step 2

The netting expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus.

Endometrial Ablation Step 3

Step 3

Precisely measured radiofrequency energy is delivered through the netting for about 90 seconds.

Endometrial Ablation Step 4

Step 4

The netted device is pulled back into the wand, and both are removed from your uterus.
