Dr. Rania Ibrahim performs endometrial ablation for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding. The procedure includes the surgical destruction of the tissues that line the uterus, known as the endometrium.
Typically, the abnormal bleeding is the result of a non-cancerous condition, but is not a sufficient treatment option when bleeding is caused by uterine cancer. This is because the cancerous cells might be located in the deepest tissues of the uterus and therefore can’t be taken out using this procedure.
Endometrial ablation is only performed on women who are not pregnant and don’t wish to become pregnant in the future. It is not performed if the patient is experiencing an active infection of the genital tract. This treatment is not the first line of action for heavy bleeding and should only be considered when other therapies have not gotten the bleeding under control.
Prior to the procedure, your OB-GYN will perform an endometrial biopsy to exclude the possibility of the existence of cancer. Imaging studies and/or direct visualization with a lighted viewing instrument that is inserted to visualize the inside of the uterus are necessary to exclude the presence of uterine polyps or benign tumors (fibroids) beneath the lining tissues of the uterus.
For younger women in particular, hormonal therapy may be prescribed in the weeks prior to the procedure to shrink the endometrium to an extent where ablation therapy has the greatest chance to succeed. The thought is that the thinner the endometrium is, the greater the chance for effective ablation.
The type of anesthesia required depends upon which method is performed. Some procedures can be performed with minimal anesthesia in-office visit while others are done as an outpatient procedure.
