Endometrial Ablation for Relief of Heavy Periods

The Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare understands how difficult and embarrassing it can be to deal with heavy bleeding during menstruation. In fact, one in five women suffers from heavy periods. That is why we offer women a safe, effective treatment option as an alternative to traditional hormone therapy or invasive surgical procedures.
 


The endometrial ablation procedure is a safe, minimally invasive treatment that uses the application of electrical energy to thin the lining of the uterus which results in a significant reduction or even complete elimination of future menstrual bleeding.
 

A quick, convenient option...
Unlike hormone therapy, which typically is less than 50 percent effective - or a hysterectomy, which is an invasive surgical procedure requiring hospitalization, general anesthesia, and a lengthy recovery - this procedure is a quick (generally less than 5 minutes), convenient (done right in our offices), non-invasive surgical procedure that alleviates heavy bleeding and allows you go on living your life on your terms.
 

Find out more…
This procedure is recommended for women who do not plan to become pregnant in the future.  If you suffer from heavy bleeding and would like a detailed overview of this treatment option, or would like to schedule diagnostic tests to see if you are a candidate for this procedure, please talk to your MCWHC physician.
