Two new, minimally invasive choices are available for your consideration for the treatment of excessive menstrual bleeding; the NovaSure endometrial ablation or Hydro ThermAlbator (HTA) have the potential to offer:

  • An alternative to hysterectomy or other major surgical procedures
  • An office procedure
  • Decreased recovery period and less need for general anesthesia
  • Fewer significant harmful side effects.

Speak with your doctor if you have questions about the NovaSure and HTA and to understand these new treatment methods for excessive menstrual bleeding.
