Gynecare Thermachoice Uterine Balloon Therapy System is an effective uterine endometrial ablation procedure for heavy periods. It reduces heavy bleeding by removing most, if not all of the lining of the uterus. This in-office procedure takes 8 minutes, requires no incisions, and may be performed under local anesthesia. Thermachoice endometrial ablation is hormone free and allows you to retain your uterus. Most women are back to their normal routines within a day or two.
Thermachoice is a nonhormonial treatment that reduces heavy bleeding due to benign causes in premenopausal women who do not wish to become pregnant in the future. This minimally invasive treatment requires no incisions and can be performed in the offices of Partners In Women’s Health Care. Thermachoice endometrial ablation has no impact on your natural hormonal composition and does not require taking daily pills.
Nearly 9 out of 10 women who had uterine endometrial ablation with Thermachoice had a reduction in menstrual pain and cramping 1 year after treatment. 2 out of 3 women treated experienced mild or no PMS symptoms 1 year after treatment. In a survey one year after treatment, 96% of women were satisfied with their results and 99% would recommend Thermachoice to others.
With Thermachoice endometrial ablation , a small soft, flexible balloon attached to a thin catheter is first inserted through the vagina and cervix and then into the uterus. No incision is required. The balloon is made of silicone material, which eliminates any allergic reactions in latex-sensitive women. The balloon is filled with fluid and inflates to the size and shape of the uterus.
The fluid is heated and circulated in the uterus for 8 minutes during which time the lining of the uterus is treated. When the treatment is over, all the fluid is withdrawn from the balloon, and it is removed. Nothing remains in the uterus. The uterine lining will shed like a period.
It avoids the cost, recovery time, and risks associated with a hysterectomy.
