Most women have a story about uterine fibroids. A sister, mother, best friend, coworker, but more often than not, it’s their own story. Over 70% of premenopausal women develop fibroids at some point in their lives. Treating those fibroids used to mean weeks off your feet and putting your uterus at risk. Not any longer. Now there are new options for treating fibroids with the Acessa Procedure. The Acessa Procedure is a minimally invasive, uterine-sparing fibroids procedure.
The Acessa procedure involves creating just two 1 cm incisions in the abdomen, inserting a needle into the fibroid, and using radiofrequency energy (or heat) to destroy it – while leaving the uterus intact. The fibroid is then reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue.
