The Acessa Procedure – The Optimal Solution for Treatment of Uterine Fibroids
Both patients and physicians want a solution that is minimally invasive, allows for rapid recovery, has a low rate of recurrence and eliminates the need for a hysterectomy.
With the Acessa System, both the surgeon and the patient are able to achieve their goals. Using a laparoscopic, outpatient procedure, the physician can provide a treatment that is low risk to the patient and is highly successful at treating all of the patient’s existing fibroids. By treating all of the fibroids, the risk of the symptom recurrence is low. Patients generally take mild anti-inflammatories following the procedure, which allows them to return to work in 4-5 days.
Patients Want to End Their Suffering
Women with symptomatic uterine fibroids have to endure the bleeding, pelvic pain and frequent urination that are brought on by their condition. They worry that if their condition continues, their quality of life will continue to deteriorate, and they may have to have major surgery.
Physicians Are Frustrated With Their Current Choices
Physicians see their patients suffering with these symptoms, and they are frustrated because their current treatment options are limited. Depending on the course of therapy the patient chooses, the physician knows the patient will either have a high rate of recurrence or may have to endure a hysterectomy.
