Uterus1: Why are innovative procedures important?
Dr. David Gandell: think that going along with caring about a patient as a total person is treating the patient with as little disruption into their everyday life as possible. For example, I am extremely excited about hydrothermal ablation of the endometrium (HTA) for heavy menstrual periods as an alternative to hysterectomy. I learned about it fairly early after its introduction and have done over 200 of them, most of them under local anesthesia where we can chat and listen to music and the woman does not have to deal with going under general anesthesia. The recovery is wonderfully smooth and quick, one to two days, as opposed to four to six weeks for a traditional abdominal hysterectomy. What’s so unique about HTA is that it is done hysteroscopically and with little pressure. It is not done “blindly” like other techniques, which cuts down on pain and increases effectiveness and safety. Women with abnormal uterine cavity shapes can also undergo this procedure.
