How Long Have You Been Suffering?

Acessa is a minimally invasive, uterine-sparing solution for women with symptomatic fibroids. Unlike many treatment alternatives, FDA-cleared Acessa can treat almost all fibroid sizes and location, on an outpatient basis, with women returning to normal activity in days, not weeks.

fi·broid

a benign tumor of muscular and fibrous tissues, typically developing in the wall of the uterus.

Fibroids affect approximately 35 million women in the United States
About 7 million women in the U.S. are symptomatic enough to see a doctor
20% to 40% of women aged 35+ have uterine fibroids of significant size
African-American women are 3-5x more likely to have fibroids than white, Asian or Hispanic women.

Symptoms Include

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding

  • Menstrual periods lasting more than a week

  • Pelvic pressure or pain

  • Frequent urination

  • Difficulty emptying the bladder

  • Constipation

  • Backache or leg pains

  • Painful intercourse

Patients want to end their suffering:

Women with symptomatic uterine fibroids have very real fears associated with their condition and are waiting far too long to get treatment; over 3.6 years according to the Journal of Women’s Health. Most worry about major surgery and time away from life.

Physicians are limited with their current choices:

It is estimated that of the 600,000 hysterectomies per year in the US, about 250,000 are because of fibroids. Other FDA-cleared, minimally invasive options come with limited access to all fibroid locations, longer hospitalization, longer recovery and varying symptom relief over time.

How It Works

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

4 Steps

1

Identify

Laparoscopic ultrasound is used to identify location and size of all fibroids present. Acessa identifies 1.5-2 times more than alternative treatments.

2

Target

The handpiece tip is inserted using laparoscopic and ultrasound guidance. A proprietary mapping system helps to accurately target the center of the fibroids.

3

Confirm

The electrode array is deployed. Laparoscopic and ultrasound guidance confirm that the electrodes remain within the fibroid.

4

Treat

The appropriate duration of ablation is determined, the treatment is applied, and any bleeding is controlled as the handpiece is withdrawn. The fibroid is absorbed by the body over time.

No cutting, suturing or morcellation of uterine tissue is required.

Acessa can treat nearly all sizes and locations of fibroids – including those outside the uterine cavity and within uterine walls.

Why would 98% of patients recommend Acessa?*

Minimally invasive, same day procedure

“Acessa is barely a surgery. Before I heard about it, I was scared to death of staying the night in the hospital for three days and having the 8- to 12-week recovery that came along with the other options offered to me.”

– Jennifer, Los Angeles

Back to normal activity in days not weeks versus other methods

“I immediately had zero back pain after surgery.”

– Erin, Los Angeles

Uterine-sparing

“I felt like (with other options) cutting into my uterus, bloody surgery, off work for 4-6 weeks – that was a big price tag. I chose Acessa instead”

– Erin, Los Angeles

Minimal post-procedure pain medication/antibiotics

“If surgery is your only option, Acessa is the most holistic of them all, given there is no post-procedure pain meds or antibiotics. I went home with two aspirin and attended a formal gala 3 nights after my surgery.”

– Jennifer, Los Angeles

Treats 95% of all identified fibroids

“I was shocked when doctors told me that they ‘may not’ be able to get all the fibroids with other methods. Alternatively, my Acessa doctor found and treated double the number of fibroids I was told I had. I left the surgery with every fibroid treated.”

– Jennifer, Los Angeles

Addresses all symptoms

“I can get into a lot of my favorite clothes now. And the pressure is gone! I don’t have the pressure on my bladder anymore, and I can actually see the difference. The shrinkage is noticeable!”

– Dawn, Dallas
