    Comfort, Control, Confidence

    Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) can dramatically affect a woman’s comfort, confidence and quality of life. The NovaSure endometrial ablation procedure is a one-time, five-minute,2 minimally invasive procedure, to reduce or stop AUB. The procedure can be conducted in an operating room (OR) and outpatient setting. 

    Smart Depth Technology

    The NovaSure procedure utilises unique, patented 'smart-depth-technology' to deliver customised ablation.


    The technology continuously monitors and measures tissue impedance and calculates the optimal power level required to treat  the cavity, based on uterine size.


    Our unique Moisture Transport® fluid removal system provides constant tissue contact with the array through integrated suction. It simultaneously removes steam, blood, and other by-products.


    The Cavity Integrity Assessment (CIA) is a built-in safety test that confirms uterine cavity integrity, giving you the confidence to perform a safe and effective ablation for every patient.
