Office Procedures

NovaSure® is an office-based endometrial ablation procedure used to treat the lining of the uterus (known as the endometrium) in women experiencing heavy menstrual periods. This safe procedure uses radiofrequency energy (radio waves) to permanently remove the uterine lining (endometrium). Your physician performs the procedure by gently inserting a thin wand, with a mesh array, into the uterus. Once the mesh has conformed to the uterine wall, a radio frequency is generated for about ninety seconds, and the wand with the array is then removed. The uterine lining will be shed over the next week to ten days. Results have included a significant reduction in menstrual bleeding, stopped periods, reduced PMS symptoms, and reduced pain and cramping.
