Expertise in a Non-Operative Permanent Procedure
Those women who seek permanent birth control are counseled about the benefits of a groundbreaking, non-operative procedure known as Essure. Essure is 99.8 percent effective based on four years of clinic data and is a safe and convenient option that is appropriate for over 90 percent of all women. It is particularly beneficial for women with health concerns, such as obesity, that may cause them to seek less invasive treatments.
To undergo the procedure, patients require only local anesthesia and anti-inflammatory medication. Soft, flexible implants are placed in the openings of the fallopian tubes to form a tissue barrier that permanently prevents pregnancy. Patients generally experience little more pain than during a normal menstrual cycle and can go home within one hour of the procedure. Most women are back to work the next day.
