The days of a traditional tubal ligation or "tying your tubes" in the hospital are over. There have been significant advancements in medicine over the last several years. These advancements now allow physicians to perform these procedures in the office because they require minimal pain medication, no incisions, and little to no recovery.
What are the advantages of having the procedure performed in the office? It's important to note that the in-office procedure is the SAME procedure that is performed in the operating room, including the same instruments and the same physician. However, there are several advantages to having the procedure performed in a doctor's office including:
- No general anesthesia and no incisions
- Significant time savings - patients generally spend 30-45 minutes in the office as opposed to over 3 hours in the hospital
- Less cost - the procedure costs significantly less in the office by avoiding high operating room costs
Permanent birth control may be the right option for women who have already completed their families. Again, these procedures are performed in the physician's office. The patient is given a small amount of medication to keep her comfortable and relaxed. Then, the physician looks into the uterus with a small camera and inserts a coil or small plug into the fallopian tubes. There are no incisions, no hormones, and it takes less than 10 minutes. The procedure is over 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy. To learn more visit, www.essure.com or www.adiana.com.
