Endometrial Ablation Through NovaSure: A Modern Approach to Menorrhagia Management

Menorrhagia or excessive menstrual bleeding is a common problem that affects many women's lives, and it often requires medical intervention. One innovative solution is endometrial ablation using the NovaSure procedure, a minimally invasive treatment that can be an ideal option for women who have completed childbearing. 

What is Endometrial Ablation?

Endometrial ablation is a medical procedure designed to destroy the lining of the uterus (endometrium) to reduce menstrual bleeding. It is often performed when other medical treatments for heavy or prolonged periods have not been successful.

NovaSure: A Novel Approach

NovaSure is a unique approach to endometrial ablation. It uses radiofrequency energy to ablate the endometrium, rather than other methods that may use laser, microwave, or freezing. This procedure typically lasts about five minutes and is often performed in our office.

How Does NovaSure Work?

During the NovaSure procedure, a slender wand is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. The wand deploys a mesh-like device that expands to fit the size and shape of the uterus. Radiofrequency energy is then applied, effectively removing the endometrial lining.

The procedure is generally done under local anesthesia, and patients are usually able to return home the same day.

Benefits of NovaSure

The NovaSure procedure offers several benefits:

Potential Risks and Complications

Though the procedure is generally considered safe, some potential risks include:


The NovaSure procedure represents a significant advancement in the treatment of menorrhagia, offering a quick and minimally invasive option with proven results. It provides a viable alternative to more drastic measures like hysterectomy and is often considered after other treatment modalities have failed.
