INSIGHTEC’s Women’s Health treatment option provides a non-invasive solution for symptomatic Uterine Fibroids and Adenomyosis. This non-invasive option spares the uterus, enabling future fertility. Focused ultrasound waves, guided by magnetic resonance imaging are used to safely ablate tumor tissue, ensuring a high rate of effectiveness with minimal side effects. Performed on an outpatient basis, patients can return to work and normal activity within days. Prevalence of uterine fibroids increases with age. In the US, 40% of 35 year old women suffer from uterine fibroids, while almost 70% by the age of 50*. Many patients tend to wait more than 3 years from discovery to treatment**, while in the meantime fibroids are growing. Today’s most common procedure for treating symptomatic, large uterine fibroids is Hysterectomy. This treatment option leaves women with no uterus and no option of having children in the future. Hysterectomy is also known to have some post procedure chronic side effects such as changes in hormonal balance, heart problems and more. That’s why having a uterus preserving treatment option, such as MRgFUS, is so critical.
