Endometrial ablation is a procedure where the endometrium (lining of the uterus) is destroyed. It is primarily used to cure excessive bleeding at the time of menses or bleeding between periods. Having started doing endometrial ablations in 1988 and having tried a number of hysteroscopic procedures to reduce or eliminate abnormal bleeding, Dr. Noel and Dr. Bergmann have chosen the Novasure ablation as the one most suitable for their patients.
The NovaSure procedure is a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using energy to
remove the lining of the uterus. The average treatment time is about 90 seconds, and only needs to be performed once to reduce or stop your periods. No pretreatment drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital or in our office under local anesthetic.
Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day.
NovaSure reduces bleeding and much more. With more than 1,00,000 patients treated to date, NovaSure is proven safe and successful. A clinical trial has shown that more than 9 out of 10 women return to normal or lower than normal bleeding levels following treatments with NovaSure. For some women, their periods even stopped completely.
Many women also experienced a reduction in PMS and painful periods, as well as other benefits such as less anxiety, greater self-confidence, and a boost in energy.
NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey results reveal:
- 45% reduction in women reporting PMS
- 64% reduction in women reporting pain
- 68% reduction in women reporting anxiety
- 71% reduction in women reporting a lack of self-confidence
- Nearly 4 fold reduction in women reporting a lack of energy
Many women find that treatment with NovaSure frees them up to enjoy more of what life has to offer. According to the NovaSure clinical trial post treatment survey, 4 out of 5 women report spending more time at work and daily activities and missing fewer social and athletic events because of heavy bleeding.
A million women to date have chosen NovaSure to reduce or eliminate their heavy periods and improve their quality of life. Women are very pleased with the results of the NovaSure procedure; 97% say they would recommend NovaSure to other women.
