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.
