Hysteroscopic Myomectomy with MyoSure

The MyoSure tissue removal procedure removes fibroids, polyps, and other intrauterine tissue without having to remove the uterus. Dr. Croak was one of the first physicians in Northwest Ohio to perform this procedure.

The MyoSure procedure is designed to allow physicians to remove any growths in the uterus, while preserving uterine function and form. This is especially important if you want to have children in the future.

Endometrial Ablation

Experiencing a monthly period is something all women go through. However, when you have a heavy cycle, you could deal with a number of other health concerns. Endometrial ablation is an outpatient procedure that uses heated saline to treat the uterine lining, or endometrium. Once treated, most women no longer experience the symptoms or effects of a heavy period. Many women stop having their period altogether.
