Endometrial Ablation

The purpose of  endometrial  ablation is to lessen or stop menstrual flow. There must be no plans to  conceive afterwards as this procedure is essentially sterilizing –  but must not be regarded as contraceptive in  itself.  For this reason the procedure is  often combined with tubal ligation.  A 5  mm diameter rod-lens telescope with a channel for instruments, attached to a  video camera is passed through the cervix (or mouth of the womb). Occasionally  a laparoscopy is required at the same time. The roller ball device is attached  to a diathermy current (electricity) which burns away the lining of the uterus  (endometrium).
