Management of Fibroids or Heavy Periods

Management of abnormal bleeding is often dependent upon a patient's desire for future fertility as well as previous treatments. If you have tried various medical therapies for heavy menstrual bleeding, completed your child-bearing, and you want to return to your normal routine without the post-operative recovery required from a hysterectomy, endometrial ablation (destruction of the uterine lining) may be for you. A simple in-office procedure allows many women to decrease the amount of bleeding and quickly return to their daily routine. Novasure is the the in-office minimally invasive procedure we offer. If this is the first time you have experienced heavy bleeding, feel free to schedule an appointment for evaluation and consideration of various medical therapies including the Mirena IUD. Should you have tried various medical therapies already, then let one of our providers discuss our simple in-office procedures with you.

If you are considering hysterectomy or a myomectomy (removal of fibroids while preserving the uterus), then a minimally invasive procedure using a robotic device to perform the surgery may be an option. The robotic device, called the da Vinci® Surgical System, is a viable, effective, minimally invasive option for many patients facing surgery.
