What has been your involvement in the development of the Acessa procedure? How many Acessa procedures have you performed? How long have you been performing Acessa? I first performed radiofrequency ablation of fibroids (Acessa procedure) in 1999 when I became the first surgeon to successfully treat a series of highly symptomatic fibroid patients with this technology. At that time I used existing instrumentation that was designed to treat liver cancer and modified the procedure and the surgical technique to allow fibroids to be effectively treated. Since then, I have established what is now the methodology for performing and teaching Acessa.
