New Treatment for Fibroids – Acessa
The Acessa procedure is a new minimally-invasive,same-day (outpatient) therapy for fibroids. It uses a technology called radiofrequency ablation.Each fibroid is destroyed by applying energy through a small needle array. The surrounding normal uterine tissue is not affected.The destroyed tissue may then be completely reabsorbed.
Uterine fibroids are a large part of most Gynecologists’ practice. The severity of the patients’ symptoms can vary widely, as every physician knows, but the challenges of treating each patient effectively remains. The current treatment choices either leave the patient at significant risk of recurrence or subject the patient to significant long term health risks.
Physicians Want A Better Solution For Their Patients
Gynecologists want to provide a way for their patients to have their fibroids treated in a minimally invasive manner that allows for minimal complications and a rapid recovery, while minimizing the chance of recurrence of the fibroid symptoms. Doing so will ensure patients don’t seek treatment outside their physician’s practice and provide great patient satisfaction.
AcessaTM System Offers a Better Option
The Acessa System presents a new alternative for patients suffering from uterine fibroids. By having a surgeon treat with the Acessa System, a woman will be able to eliminate the symptoms of her fibroids while keeping a healthy uterus, allowing her to return to a normal quality of life, without the potential long-term complications due to hysterectomy. The procedure is done in an outpatient setting using a minimally invasive procedure, allowing her to have little scarring and enabling her to go home the same day. Best of all, the chances of her experiencing a recurrence of symptoms due to fibroids is extremely low.
