Uterine fibroids are benign muscle tumors of the uterus. Most common symptoms include heavy vaginal bleeding and painful periods. Treatments include hormonal regulation, uterine artery embolization, surgical removal of fibroids, and hysterectomy. To remove all fibroids and prevent them from recurring, hysterectomy is required. Now there is a new treatment for fibroids that allows the uterus to be preserved while all existing fibroids are destroyed. The Acessa procedure is a revolutionary new treatment to remove fibroids. It is done laparoscopically as a same-day procedure with minimal recovery.
