Uterine fibroids, which are non-cancerous growths occurring in the uterus, affect a significant majority of women of reproductive age, surpassing 70%. These fibroids exhibit diverse characteristics in terms of size, shape, and location, leading to a wide range of symptoms including pelvic pain, irregular uterine bleeding, anemia, increased urinary frequency, dyspareunia, and constipation.

Our approach to managing uterine fibroids encompasses a holistic strategy, combining advanced surgical techniques with medical interventions. In addition to offering sophisticated fertility-preserving surgical treatments, we incorporate innovative methods such as laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation and uterine artery embolization into our treatment modalities, ensuring personalized and effective care for each individual.

Moreover, we prioritize patient education and empowerment throughout the treatment journey. Our team ensures clear communication regarding the nature of uterine fibroids, treatment options, potential risks, and expected outcomes. We believe in fostering a collaborative relationship with our patients, empowering them to make informed decisions about their health. By providing comprehensive information and ongoing support, we strive to optimize outcomes and enhance the overall well-being of every individual we serve.

What we treat:

  • Fibroids
  • Heavy bleeding/menorrhagia
  • Painful periods/dysmenorrhea
  • Pelvic pain


  • Laparoscopic and Robotic Myomectomy
  • Laparoscopic and Robotic Hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy
  • Uterine artery embolization


Termed Laparoscopic Radiofrequency Ablation (Lap RFA) in clinical practice, Acessa® presents a viable option for pre-menopausal women navigating the challenges posed by uterine fibroids. Tailored to those who have exhausted pharmaceutical avenues and seek a less invasive alternative to hysterectomy, Acessa® offers a promising solution.

Diverging from traditional surgical approaches that involve incisions into the uterus, our adept clinicians employ precision-guided heat to directly target fibroid tissue, inducing controlled ablation and subsequent shrinkage. This innovative technique not only mitigates discomfort and symptoms associated with fibroids but also facilitates a smoother recovery trajectory for patients.
