NovaSure endometrial ablation - alternative to a hysterectomy

Endometrial ablation is a procedure which provides a solution for women who suffer with heavy periods.

It is a minimally invasive treatment which is an alternative to a hysterectomy and which avoids hormonal medication.

The NovaSure procedure takes 90 seconds. It involves a precisely controlled radio frequency energy being delivered through a thin handheld wand to treat the lining of the uterus. It is a quick and simple procedure which can be carried out as a day case procedure under a general anaesthetic.

It is minimally invasive and does not require incisions. It can be carried out at any time during the menstrual cycle. Patients can go home the same day and can usually return to work within one or two days. Patients should discuss with their specialist if the treatment might be suitable for them.
