Novasure Procedure

One in five women live with very heavy periods. Periods that get in the way of everyday life. Periods that keep you from the people you love and the things you enjoy. NovaSure is a one-time, 5-minute procedure that can lighten - or end your heavy period - without on-going pills and without hormonal side effects. For over 90% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. Maybe it's time to step back into life.

IS NOVASURE ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION RIGHT FOR ME?

If you are absolutely sure that you never want to have any children in the future, and would like to stop your heavy period and restart your life, NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation may be right for you.

If heavy periods are making it difficult for you to live a normal life, Minerva may be the answer for you. The Minerva Treatment is a one-time, safe, effective, quick and complete procedure that can reduce heavy bleeding. The treatment can be done at our office or outpatient setting, without making incisions or using general anesthesia that puts you to sleep.

The Minerva Treatment can be done at any time during the menstrual cycle. It is a 3 to 4 minute treatment that can be done in our office, and you do not need to be put to sleep (general anesthesia). Clinical studies tested the Minerva System and the following benefits were found.
