Microwave Endometrial Ablation

What is Microwave Endometrial Ablation?

Microwave endometrial ablation is a short, minimally invasive and effective treatment for periods that are abnormally heavy or have prolonged bleeding. A microwave endometrial ablation (MEA) is a quick and straightforward outpatient or day-case surgical treatment. It destroys a thin layer of your uterus (womb) lining with the aim to reduce period bleeding to normal or lighter levels.

MEA involves inserting a special probe into your womb through your cervix. Your womb will be widened to allow the probe to enter. The probe applies microwave energy to your womb lining that heats the endometrial tissue and destroys it. The procedure usually only takes a few minutes to perform.
