The Acessa® procedure is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment that involves two small abdominal incisions.1 It uses controlled radiofrequency energy, heat, to cause coagulative necrosis of the fibroid tissue. The treated tissue softens and shrinks over time, allowing fibroid symptoms to resolve with no suturing of the uterine tissue.1
Unlike many alternative interventions, the Acessa procedure optimizes imaging of the uterus by simultaneously displaying the laparoscopic camera view and the ultrasound view in real-time, so physicians can identify and treat nearly all locations of fibroids, including those outside the uterine cavity and within uterine walls.1 Women typically experience minimal discomfort after the procedure, quick return to work in 4-5 days, and long-term satisfaction and relief.1
