Endometrial Ablation

Expert physicians of the Jefferson Fibroid Center as well as the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology have performed many endometrial ablations as an alternative to a hysterectomy.

An endometrial ablation is a procedure that destroys the uterine lining and is used to treat dysfunctional or abnormal uterine bleeding. The procedure can take up to 45 minutes.
