Northwest Women’s Healthcare is pleased to be the first group in Seattle to offer the newest FDA approved endometrial ablation technique, Minerva. The procedure is used to treat heavy menstrual bleeding and is safe, effective, and the entire treatment usually takes less than 4 minutes. It is well tolerated in the office and does not require sedation.
Studies have shown that 92% of women have their heavy bleeding reduced to a normal amount or less, and 66% of women have no further menstrual bleeding. Satisfaction rate is 98%. Improvements in pelvic cramping, sexual satisfaction, and energy levels have also been noted.
Please contact us at 206-386-3400 if you would like to make an appointment to speak with one of our providers about whether the Minerva ablation would be a good option for you! So far our patients who have undergone this procedure have been very pleased with the results.
