Women with symptomatic uterine fibroids endure heavy menstrual bleeding, painful menstruation, abdominal distension, pelvic pain, and urinary frequency. Symptoms often worsen over time, leading to deterioration in quality of life and loss of normal function. For many, major surgery (hysterectomy) becomes the only option offered by physicians.
Now there is another option. The FDA-cleared Acessa™ procedure invented by Dr. Bruce Lee provides a safe and effective minimally invasive solution that allows rapid recovery, low rate of recurrence, minimal postoperative pain, and in all but the most extreme cases, eliminates the need for hysterectomy.Read More
“I can’t recommend radiofrequency ablation, the Acessa Procedure, and Dr. Bruce Lee enough. I turned to Dr. Lee, a kind, patient, personable, and very experienced doctor to treat my eight fibroids through the radiofrequency ablation (Acessa) procedure. My symptoms included a large bloated abdomen, severe blood loss (menorrhagia), frequent urination (every half hour), dyspareunia (sexual pain), recurrent constipation/diarrhea (fibroid on top of my bowel), lower back pain, and an excessively large uterus.
After just two hours and two incision sites and one or more puncture sites for the Acessa needle, I walked out of the outpatient facility and through the lobby to our room at the far end of a very large hotel. Within 48 hours, my frequent urination was normal, no more back pain, no more sexual pain, normal bowel function for the first time in well over ten years. My bloated stomach has also decreased in size (a full pant size) in just over two months. My blood loss has also decreased approximately fifty percent from before the procedure. I didn’t know how sick I was and what my new normal was, until after this procedure. I needed no pain medication and was back at work after five days, spinning within two weeks, and playing tennis after a month. To say the Acessa system was the best choice I could have made is an understatement. It changed my life.” Wendy G.
