Gynecare Thermachoice® is an effective treatment for women who suffer from menorrhagia: heavy periods. Many women suffer through these periods not realizing that they can have relief from the discomfort and limitations that come with them.
81% of women treated with Gynecare Thermachoice® returned to normal levels of menstrual bleeding or lower, and 89% of patients felt reduced menstrual pain and cramping.
The entire Gynecare Thermachoice® procedure takes about 8 minutes. Dr. Gardner and her staff will place you under a local anesthesia, numbing the uterus and surrounding area. Next, a small silicone balloon is inserted into the uterus and gently heated. The fluid in the balloon treats the lining of the uterus.
The procedure requires no incision and little recovery time, with patients resuming normal activities the next day.
