Endometrial Ablation is an office based procedure used for the treatment of heavy vaginal bleeding. It is a very effective and successful alternative to a hysterectomy procedure.

Many women suffer from heavy menstrual flow (Abnormal Uterine Bleeding). Symptoms of Abnormal bleeding include: a menstrual flow lasting longer than 7 days, changing pads more than once per hour, a significant worsening in flow than in previous years, or experiencing severe fatigue or dizziness during menses.  There are many possible causes of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding including:

  • Uterine Fibroids

  • Uterine Adenomyosis
  • Coagulation Disorders (eg: Von Willibrand’s Disease)
  • Kidney or Liver Failure
  • Anovulation (eg: Obesity and PCOS)
  • Endocrine disorders (Thyroid dysfunction)
  • Presciption and over-the-counter Medications
  • Cancer and dysplasia (eg: Uterus, Cervix or leukemia)
