Having surgical procedures done in the office can benefit you in many ways. The office setting is more comfortable and familiar, which can reduce your anxiety level. Most insurance plans prefer minor procedures to be done in the office due to increasing healthcare costs and only require an office visit copay instead of meeting a high deductible. If you are considering NovaSure, our physicians will be happy to discuss whether or not you are a candidate for in-office surgery.
NovaSure is an endometrial ablation that can reduce or stop menstrual bleeding for 90% of women. It works by removing the lining of the uterus (the part that causes your bleeding) with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy. This procedure is a quick, safe, and simple procedure that can be done in the office without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy. Heavy bleeding is not something you have to live with!
NovaSure can do more than just stop your bleeding:
- Little to no pain
- Improved energy levels
- Significant reduction in pre-menstrual symptoms
- Improved daily living
We contract moderate sedation anesthesia to administer and monitor your anesthesia during the procedure, and will be there along with your physician when you wake up.
