Surgical Procedures: Novasure

The Novasure procedure is an endometrial ablation treatment.

This procedure is done to manage heavy menstrual bleeding when other options have failed. Novasure is done by using energy to remove the lining of the uterus. This procedure is done by inserting a wand made of mesh through the cervix. The wand expands and conforms to the shape of the uterus. Next radio frequency energy is carried through the mesh wand into the lining of the uterus. Finally, the wand closes to its original shape and is withdrawn through the cervix.

This procedure is minimally invasive and usually has a quick recovery period.
