Non-invasive Tubal Occlusion (elective sterilization) via Hysteroscopy (i.e. ESSURE System ®)

For those women who decide they want permanent sterilization as their method of birth control, the FDA has approved a procedure that is an alternative to the traditional method of surgical tubal ligation (fallopian tubes severed and sealed or "pinched shut", in order to prevent fertilization).

Performed in our Libertyville office, your doctor will use the Hysteroscope to insert spring-like coils, called “micro-inserts” into your fallopian tubes.  There is no cutting into the body.  During the three months following the procedure your body forms scar tissue that completely blocks the fallopian tubes. 

This method is NOT reversible and is recommended only for women who do not want to become pregnant in the future.  Consult your doctor to determine if Non-invasive Tubal Occlusion is right for you.
