Treating Heavy Bleeding
Many women suffer from a condition known as Menorrhagia (excessive menstrual flow). For some women this condition can be debilitating and affect the quality of their lives. Most women who develop menorrhagia will experience heavy bleeding due to hormone imbalance seen commonly in the 35-50 age range. Fibroids and polyps (both of which are benign) can also cause menorrhagia. Symptoms of menorrhagia or excessive menstrual bleeding may also include cramping, pelvic pain and, in severe cases, anemia.
Dr. Campbell provides treatment for heavy bleeding using a minimally invasive surgical technique. The procedure is called endometrial ablation. It uses energy from a laser to remove or ablate the lining of the uterus. The procedure is quick, usually 2 minutes, and it is effective immediately.
