Acessa® Procedure

The Acessa Procedure is a new, minimally invasive procedure that can shrink or eliminate fibroid tumors. The Acessa Procedure is a quick, same-day, outpatient surgery that leads to rapid symptom relief and a fast recovery. The Acessa Procedure destroys each fibroid by applying energy with a small array needle. The surrounding tissue is unaffected and the destroyed tissue may be reabsorbed.

Acessa® Q & A

What is involved in the Acessa® Procedure?

Your doctor will make two tiny incisions in your abdomen and insert a small scope guided with ultrasound. Then, with specific controlled radiofrequency energy, the doctor will be able to destroy the fibroid while keeping the surrounding tissue unharmed.

Does the Acessa® rocedure take long?

Your surgery will be done on an outpatient basis so you can go home the same day. The length of your surgery depends on the number and size of fibroids that are treated. Some surgery is lengthy, lasting for several hours.

Is the Acessa® Procedure safe?

The Acessa® Procedure has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for uterine fibroids with very low complication rates. Your physician can discuss the risks of the procedure and other available treatments.

What should I expect from the Acessa® Procedure?

The results of the Acessa® Procedure are different for everyone. But generally, patients are relieved of pelvic pain and pressure shortly after the procedure is performed. Heavy periods may be noticeably better within three to six months or as soon as the first menstruation.

Is the Acessa® Procedure right for me?

Uterine fibroids are a common medical problem for women and can have a significant impact on their health. If you are suffering from heavy or long periods, abdominal pain and pressure, frequent urination, and/or low energy due to anemia, the Acessa® Procedure may be right for you. The procedure takes one hour under a surgeon's supervision and has a 97% success rate.
