The Acessa Procedure

If you suffer from heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, abdominal pain and pressure, frequent urination and low energy due to anemia, you may have uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are very common. In fact, approximately 70% of women have fibroids by age 50.

If you suffer from these symptoms and have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, you may be a candidate for the Acessa Procedure.

The Acessa Procedure

The Acessa Procedure is a minimally invasive, same-day, outpatient procedure that shrinks or completely eliminates fibroids. With this laparoscopic procedure there is a rapid and significant reduction in symptoms, and recovery is fast. You can return to normal activities and enjoy a greatly improved quality of life, without undergoing a hysterectomy. And, with the Acessa Procedure there is a very low need for further treatment.

The Acessa Procedure uses a technology called radiofrequency ablation. Each fibroid is destroyed by applying energy through a small array needle. The surrounding tissue is not affected. The destroyed tissue may then be completely reabsorbed.
