NovaSure®

Novasure is a safe procedure using radio frequency energy (radio waves) to affect the uterine lining (endometrium). The procedure is performed by your physician gently inserting a thin wand, with a mesh array, into the uterus. Once the mesh has conformed to the uterine wall, a radio frequency is generated for about 90 seconds and the wand with the array is then removed.  Results have included a significant reduction in menstrual bleeding, stopped periods, reduced PMS symptoms and reduced pain and cramping if related to heavy menstrual flow.

Note: Pregnancy after any form of endometrial ablation is a rare but possible event and the risk of complications is increased.

  • For the treatment of heavy periods, hysterectomy may not be the best option for everyone. In some cases, a less invasive procedure is a better choice.
  • Endometrial Ablation is an option for premenopausal women who have completed childbearing. It can be performed in our office using a local anesthetic or at the hospital with a general anasthetic.
