The Acessa Procedure is Revolutionary for Women

The Acessa Procedure is revolutionary for women. Acessa is an option that is now available, possibly allowing a woman to avoid a hysterectomy. I had the Acessa procedure 10 days ago with Dr. Bruce Lee. I am feeling amazing! Right after the laparoscopic surgery, I immediately noticed a change in urinary issues I had been experiencing. I am hopeful that my frequent urinary track infections will be resolved. I also noticed that a continuous pressure, tightness and fullness above my pelvic bone was gone. I felt unexpected relief with a certain type of lower back pain I have had for

Wholeheartedly Recommend Dr. Lee and the Acessa procedure

I am beyond grateful to have found such an amazing doctor and procedure for the treatment of my uterine fibroids. The experience has been a great and truly liberating one for me.

He is an incredibly dedicated, knowledgeable and through doctor, with a warm and comforting bedside manner (truly a wonderful man). Any initial hesitations subsided and paled in comparison to my concerns about having a hysterectomy; as this was the recommended treatment option offered by my initial

Life Before Acessa

An Acessa Patient Shares Her Bold Journey to Discover a Better Treatment For Painful Fibroids My fibroids were detected at an annual gynecological check-up over 10 years ago. My OB/GYN noticed the fibroids manually. She sent me to get an ultrasound where they said there were a few fibroids, but not very large, so I didn’t do anything about them. For years, I noticed at every check-up my fibroids were getting larger. My sister was diagnosed with a large fibroid, the size of a grapefruit, when she was 50.
