What is Endometrial Ablation?
Endometrial ablation is an effective treatment for heavy periods, using GYNECARE THERMACHOICE. Endometrial ablation stops or reduces heavy bleeding by removing most, if not all of the lining of the uterus. This is an 8 minute outpatient procedure where heat is applied to treat the endometrium. It requires no incisions and is performed at our doctor’s office. GYNECARE THERMACHOICE is hormone free and allows you to retain your uterus.
It is not appropriate for:
• A patient who is pregnant or who wants to become pregnant in the future.
• Patients with known or suspected uterine cancer
• Patients with active infections
• Patients with an IUD currently in place
81% of women experience either lighter bleeding or no bleeding at all 1 year after treatment with GYNECARE THERMACHOICE. 43% of women had lighter periods and 37% had no periods at all.
