Uterine Ablation

  • This is a procedure that destroys the uterine lining and is used for patients who have excessive bleeding with their periods.
  • Many patients can have this procedure done in our office using the Novasure system.
  • Medication is used the night before your procedure to help dilate the cervix.
  • Oral sedation and an injection are given the day of the procedure.
  • Local anesthetic is used.
  • Many patients will also have a Hysteroscopy done at the same time.
  • The Novasure device usually takes only 90 seconds to complete the uterine lining destruction.
  • >60% of patients will have no periods after the procedure.
  • 97% of patients are satisfied with their lighter periods after the procedure.
  • This procedure has drastically reduced the number of hysterectomies done for excessive bleeding with periods.
  • Full recovery can be expected within a few days.

For those patients whose insurance carrier does not cover this procedure in the office, Novasure can be performed at Capital Medical Center as an outpatient.
