Procedure Description:

A minimally invasive treatment for heavy periods.

What To Expect:

Remember when you used to call it “your friend”? For many patients, the “friend” is a monthly source of physical and emotional distress. Dr. Evans offers a new fast and minimally invasive outpatient procedure for treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia). This procedure is an alternative to hormones or hysterectomy for certain patients and is covered by many health plans.

Preprocedure:

No pre-treatment hormones are required and the procedure can be performed at any time during a woman’s cycle. Under general or local anesthesia an electrode is placed thru the cervix and a radio frequency energy removes the lining of the uterus (endometrium).

Postprocedure:

Most women are able to resume normal activities in a couple of days. This procedure results with most women experiencing light menses and in some women total cessation of menses occurs.

  • 50% of women stop having menses.
  • 40% have improved the menses.
