Treating Fibroids without Invasive Surgery

April 8, 2014

Description

The Acessa Procedure is a minimally invasive, laparoscopic procedure to treat fibroids that involves general anesthesia, typically allowing a woman to go home the same day. This is appealing to many women who desire a quick recovery time and a less invasive approach to removing or controlling fibroids in the uterus. The Acessa System consists of a generator that allows the doctor to easily monitor bleeding and temperature during the procedure, and a hand piece and electrode that effectively shrink the fibroids.

The Acesa Procedure is ideal for treating fibroids because it is designed to eliminate fibroids of any size. The hand piece is used as a guide for finding and isolating the fibroids. The electrode is deployed as necessary to shrink each fibroid individually. This is done using MRI technology that seeks out the fibroids. It’s generally very successful at targeting the masses that need attention.

Benefits

There are many reasons why a woman would choose to undergo the Acessa Procedure to treat her fibroids. The procedure offers a quick recovery time when compared to traditional surgical methods. The tools used treat only the fibroids, without endangering any surrounding tissue or internal organs. The Acessa Procedure results in a low recurrence of fibroids, which is good news for women who have undergone several treatments for them in the past. Finally, the Acessa Procedure has a high rate of satisfaction among women who have undergone the procedure.

Of course, the Acessa Procedure might not be right for every woman. In addition, because the procedure is fairly new, it may take more time to get preauthorization of the procedure from your insurance carrier. The best thing to do is for women interested in the Acessa Procedure to speak to their gynecologist about the appropriateness of the method for their specific case of fibroids.

Left untreated, fibroids can result in anemia due to blood loss and other challeges. Fibroids that can interfere with daily life should be treated appropriately.
