Excessive Menstrual Bleeding Treatment

Hydrothermal ablation (HTA) provides long-term relief for women with excessive menstrual bleeding. The gynecologist inserts a thin tube into the vagina to deliver a heated saline solution that flows over the surface of the uterus. The solution ‘dissolves’ the endometriosis.

Benefits of Hydrothermal Ablation:

  • Quick – takes about 30 minutes in the office
  • Performed under local or general anesthesia
  • Return to normal routines and schedules typically within 48 hours
  • Stops periods completely or only light bleeding

If you experience chronic heavy bleeding, talk with one of our doctors about options. Treating endometriosis restores confidence and lets women enjoy more energy for everyday activities.


I came to Dr. Helliwell from a different ob/gyn that I did not have such a good experience with. I am much happier with him by far! The staff is great and the office is wonderful!
