Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding Endometrial Ablation
Endometrial ablation is a procedure in which a telescope-like instrument, called a hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus through the vagina.
A laser is used to destroy the inner lining of the uterus. Cryoablation uses extreme cold to freeze endometrial tissue and stop the bleeding.
A rapid endometrial ablation technique that treats the entire internal surface of the uterus. The procedure does not require an incision or hospitalization. Pre-treatment with hormones is not required, and the procedure can be performed at any time of the cycle.
