How is Endometrial Ablation performed at Family Hospital?
Although this procedure can be performed at a doctor’s office or personal clinic, we prefer to perform our Endometrial Ablation procedures in our operating theater. We can perform the procedure through a number of techniques such as Electrical ( with electric currents that cauterize the tissue ), Hydrothermal ( Heated fluids that destroy the endometrial lining ), Ballon Therapy ( a heated ballon is inserted therefore removing the lining area ) or Cryoablation ( freezes the lining therefore destroying it. Most of our procedures are performed with a hysteroscope and resectoscope and we most commonly use epidural or blockage to perform the treatment. Your particular technique will depend on our surgeons recommendation.

After Surgery Indications
Depending on the type of anesthesia you had and the technique that was used to perform this treatment, we will let you know how long you will need to stay in the recovery room or the hospital. It is normal to feel cramps or nausea after surgery but will do as best we can to assist you during this time. It is important for you to avoid intercourse or any tampon placements in the vaginal area for at least 3 nights post surgery. You will be able to go back to your regular normal activities after 3 total nights but medication can be prescribed by your surgeon.
