The Acessa Procedure is a new, FDA cleared, outpatient, minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure that treats uterine fibroids safely and effectively without a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). See Dellita report her experience one year after Acessa, and why she is now publicly revealing her devastating symptoms and how uterine fibroid tumors controlled her life.
Before treatment, Dellita looked 6-months pregnant, had severe anemia, and suffered depression. She underwent outpatient treatment of 32 fibroid tumors with Acessa one year ago. She recovered rapidly and resumed most normal activities in 4-5 days. Within a few months, Dellita had her life back. Six months after Acessa, she had a flat tummy.
Acessa is performed through two small incisions, one 5 mm and one 10 mm in length. The fibroids are destroyed with negligible effect upon normal uterine tissue. Recovery is rapid and narcotics are not required postoperatively. Most patients return to work within 4-6 days after Acessa.
Uterine fibroids are the most common tumor in women during the reproductive years. Almost 70% of Caucasian women and greater than 80% of African-American women have fibroids. Fibroids are the most common reason that women undergo a hysterectomy (major surgery to remove the uterus). With the arrival of Acessa, women now have the option of having their fibroids treated safely and effectively without a hysterectomy.
