ACESSA New Minimally Invasive Fibroid Treatment Available Across the Country

For women seeking a minimally invasive alternative to hysterectomy, laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (Acessa™) may be a good treatment option.

What is radiofrequency ablation (Acessa™) of Fibroids?

Radiofrequency ablation (Acessa™) of fibroids uses heat to destroy the fibroid tissue. Radiofrequency ablation (Acessa™) is performed during a laparoscopic surgery. A small ¼ inch incision is made in the belly button. A thin lighted telescope is placed through this incision to visualize the uterus and surrounding organs. A ½ inch incision is made in the skin overlying the uterus. A special ultrasound probe that works inside the body is placed on the uterus to clearly see the fibroids. A needle-like device is inserted into the fibroid. Once the needle is in the middle of the fibroid, the energy is activated and heat is delivered directly to the fibroid until the entire fibroid is destroyed. The treated fibroid shrinks in size by ~ 40% within 3 months after treatment.
