The Essure procedure is different than the traditional method of a surgical tubal ligation. With Essure there is no cutting into the body. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts spring-like coils, called micro-inserts, through the body’s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes.
The procedure can be performed in your doctor’s office without general anesthesia.

The NovaSure procedure is
a quick, safe, simple, one-time endometrial ablation treatment.
This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by
using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. The average
treatment time is about 90 seconds 1, and only needs to be
performed once to lighten or stop your periods. No pretreatment
drugs are required and NovaSure can be performed in the hospital
or in your doctor's office.
Without the side effects of hormones or the risks of hysterectomy, NovaSure has a quick recovery time so you can get back to your life sooner. Most women experience no pain after the procedure, and can return to work and regular activities the next day.
Do you suffer from heavy bleeding?
Does your menstrual cycle seem abnormally long or heavy? Are you afraid of leaking through a pad or tampon? Have you been diagnosed with anemia from blood loss? If so, you may have menorrhagia (pronounced: men-o-rahj-ah).
Menorrhagia is defined as unusually heavy or long-lasting menstrual periods. It occurs in 1 out of every 5 women. If you believe that you might have excessive menstrual bleeding, speak with a doctor after exploring this site to learn more about your treatment options for heavy periods.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery
When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to
relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most
effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. These
include, but are not limited to, cervical and uterine cancer,
uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse and
menorrhagia or excessive bleeding.
With da Vinci Surgery, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.
At the same time, state-of-the-art robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon's hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
