Excessive menstrual bleeding is a debilitating condition that affects one in five women ages 35 to 49 years old in the United States. The NovaSure system, available in the U.S. since 2001, is designed to reduce or eliminate excessive bleeding by safely removing the endometrial lining of the uterus. The 90-second procedure requires no incisions, can be performed in a physician's office or outpatient setting and typically allows patients to return to their normal activities in less than a day.

"Many women are excited to learn there is a safe, effective and quick solution to excessive menstrual bleeding that does not require major surgery," said Tony Kingsley
