ABOUT FIBROIDS: Fibroids are benign, non-cancerous tumors in a woman’s uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyomas, fibroids are made up of muscle and connective tissue and may range in size from microscopic to larger than a grapefruit. The rate at which they grow is unpredictable, and a woman may have more than one fibroid at a time. While some fibroids are asymptomatic, others can be very painful and cause heavy bleeding, pressure on the bladder or rectum, a distended abdomen, and a lack of energy stemming from anemia. The majority of American women will develop fibroids at some point in their lives. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), at least 70 percent of women in the U.S. will develop fibroids by age 50, and the prevalence is even higher among African American women.

ABOUT THE ACESSA PROCEDURE: Acessa is a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure that delivers radiofrequency energy to destroy fibroids, and relieves symptoms without damaging or removing the uterus. After treatment, the fibroids are re-absorbed by the surrounding tissue. Acessa allows the surgeon to treat only the fibroids, while preserving normal function of the uterus. Patients typically go home the same day with little pain, and enjoy a rapid return to normal activities. Acessa is FDA-cleared for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: Acessa Health encourages patients to seek medical attention for typical and atypical symptoms associated with fibroids to help achieve and maintain good health with as high a quality of life as possible.
