The word hysteroscopy and a hysterectomy sound a lot alike but, in fact, they are quite different. A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of a woman’s uterus. A hysteroscopy is a diagnostic tool that uses a hysteroscope to look at a woman’s cervix and uterus through the vagina. A hysteroscopy is most often performed to diagnose the cause of a patient’s abnormal bleeding. It can also be used to diagnosis a number of other issues, such as endometrial polyps, uterine fibroids, or guidance during the performance of endometrial ablation. Hysteroscopy can also be used to remove an embedded IUD.
NovaSure is an in-office surgical form of endometrial ablation. It involves the use of radiofrequency to cauterize the lining of the uterus. The main reason women elect to undergo NovaSure endometrial ablation is to stop having heavy or abnormal periods. Women who suffer from too frequent or excessive menstrual bleeding usually enjoy immediate results. NovaSure performed in Dr. Lambert’s office takes only minutes to perform.
Essure is a permanent form of birth control. It is a sterilization procedure that does not require major surgery or the use of hormones, making it a desirable choice for many women who do not want to become pregnant in the future. Essure works via a coil that’s implanted into the fallopian tubes. The coil induces scarring. Once scar tissue grows across the fallopian tubes, you are unable to get pregnant since the sperm can’t reach the egg. Essure offers effective and permanent birth control without the use of hormones. As an FDA-approved birth control method, Essure has been on the market for more than a decade and is 99 percent effective.
