What is Endometrial Ablation?
Endometrial ablation is a surgery to treat abnormal menstrual bleeding, specifically heavy bleeding or menorrhagia. The purpose is to eliminate the lining of the uterus to lessen menstrual bleeding and potentially stop it altogether.
During this minimally invasive operation, we will determine the method of treatment based on the severity of your condition. While no cuts are made, we may use anesthesia or conscious sedation depending on which method you prefer. Additionally, we may utilize a variety of techniques including cryotherapy, electrosurgery, laser ablation, and others.
Once you and your provider have agreed on the best technique for you, your provider will insert thin tools through the neutral opening of the cervix to eliminate the endometrial tissue. Most women go home the same day and recovery time varies depending on the method used.
