Alternative to Hysterectomy
For women suffering from excessive uterine bleeding, Metroplex Adventist Hospital offers an alternative to a hysterectomy. Endometrial ablation uses radio frequencies to cease this bleeding. A hysterectomy, which is considered major surgery to remove the uterus, can require up to six weeks healing time. Endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure that allows the patient to go home the same day and heal in a matter of days.
Endometrial ablation is an effective treatment for appropriately selected patients. It has a major impact on the patient’s quality of life and can help a woman restore activities that were once limited by excessive bleeding and anemia.
