There's a new trend happening in doctors' offices that's great news for the one in five women who suffer from menorrhagia (heavy periods). Gynecologists are performing endometrial ablation, a less-invasive alternative to hysterectomy, in their offices.

Heavy menstrual bleeding is the cause of a large portion of the 600,000 hysterectomies performed each year, and most often, this means women undergo major surgery with a painful recovery lasting up to six weeks. But, endometrial ablation is a one-day solution designed to resolve heavy menstrual flows by thermally treating the lining of the uterus; the uterus is preserved. Women who have this treatment in their gynecologist's office go home the same day and typically get back to their normal activities quickly.
