In-Office Endometrial Ablation Q & A

Cherry Hills Midwifery, Obstetrics, & Gynecology

What Exactly Is an In-Office Endometrial Ablation?

An in-office endometrial ablation is a procedure that can treat many instances of extremely heavy menstrual bleeding. The procedure involves removing a thin layer of the uterine lining. Once the layer of lining is removed, menstrual bleeding lightens and sometimes stops altogether.  This procedure is an in-office alternative to hysterectomy.

How Long Does an In-Office Endometrial Ablation Take?

As an in-office procedure, an endometrial ablation doesn’t take long. Plan on spending an hour in the office which covers preparation beforehand, the procedure, and recovery afterwards.  You must bring someone with you to drive home afterwards as you will receive sedative medication.   Since it’s an in-office procedure, women can resume their normal activity the following day.

Who Is a Good Candidate for an In-Office Endometrial Ablation?

Any woman who experiences abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding might benefit from an in-office endometrial ablation. There are some medical considerations to take into account before scheduling the procedure. Women who want to become pregnant, for example, are not be suited for the procedure. A gynecologist or OB-GYN can help women take into account all relevant medical considerations and decide whether an in-office endometrial ablation is right for them.

What Advantages Does an In-Office Endometrial Ablation Have?

For women who are good candidates for the procedure, an in-office endometrial ablation presents several advantages. The procedure is less invasive, faster, and less expensive than a hysterectomy with fewer complications. An endometrial ablation does not alter the ovarian production of hormones.

Is an In-Office Endometrial Ablation Covered by Health Insurance?

As an indicated, medical procedure, an in-office endometrial ablation is covered under health insurance. Insurance coverage is a function of a patient’s deductible and co-insurance and we will be happy to determine this prior to the procedure. Usually, a hysteroscopy (looking inside the uterus) and an endometrial biopsy are required before the ablation to determine if the patient is the proper candidate for an ablation.
