While over 7 million U.S. women suffer from symptomatic fibroids, only ~ 300,000 choose to undergo a therapeutic procedure. That means that patients would rather suffer with fibroid symptoms rather than undergo one of the procedures offered.
Acessa is a minimally invasive solution that prevents removal of the uterus and yet is very effective at treating all the symptoms produced by fibroids. A surgeon skilled in Acessa can treat any type of fibroid in any location. Multiple fibroids can be treated in one setting.
Only two small incisions 1.0 and 0.5 cm are needed with one hidden in the umbilicus. Recovery is rapid, often only several days. Most patients require only minimal pain medications if any at all (anti-inflammatories) and most return to work within 4 days.
The recurrence rate in patients treated by physicians new to Acessa was cumulatively only 11% at 3 years after the procedure.
