COMMUNITY: Frequently Asked Questions
Uterus1: What is the HydroTherm ablation (HTA) technique?
Dr. Mark Glasser: HTA—HydroTherm ablation is a procedure that I have been doing now for a little over four years. It’s a procedure for the management of abnormal uterine bleeding which we have now done about 140 times in our office under local anesthesia. Our patients don’t even have to get into a gown. It’s almost like coming in for a Pap smear or a minor surgical biopsy.
Dr. Jay Berman: The hydrothermablator procedure (HTA) is a method to bring endometrial ablation to more gynecologists who were not doing operative hysteroscopic surgical procedures but were doing basic diagnostic hysteroscopy. It involves placing a hysteroscope inside the cervix, viewing the endometrial cavity, and then gradually heating up saline solution until four or five millimeters of the endometrial lining are destroyed to reduce the patient’s bleeding.
