"Dr. Garg has been one of the only doctors, in my experience, to make me feel at ease and feeling grateful after leaving appointments. He delivered my daughter in 2011 and had taken me in when I was in my third trimester and switched providers. It was a night and day difference. He genuinely listens. I've sat in the exam room in tears and he never made me feel judged or silly. He answers my questions and is very real and straightforward while providing empathy and understanding. I'm hesitant to refer him to others ONLY because I don't want him to have too many patients that he won't continue to see me too haha. I have been trying to stay with him as much as possible during this second pregnancy and wouldn't have it any other way."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 28, 2021

Who is a Candidate for ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION?
To be a candidate for endometrial ablation, we want you to understand that this treatment will make it very difficult for you to sustain a healthy pregnancy. In thinning the uterine lining, you will have a uterus that would not make a viable environment for carrying a baby. Of course, we will discuss this in-depth in your initial appointment. Your OBGYN will make the decision if this is the right procedure for you. Then, you will make the decision to go forward with the treatment or not.
The symptoms that qualify you for endometrial ablation are:
- Endometriosis that does not respond to other treatments
- Heavy flow during menstrual periods
- Period cramps that keep you from your normal routine
- Feelings of pressure in other internal organs near the uterus
After a consultation, physical, and pelvic exam, we can devise a plan of action to manage your symptoms of endometriosis at the appropriate level.
What to expect during ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION
In an outpatient setting, we can provide you with the NovaSure or TheraChoice endometrial ablation treatments that use radiofrequency heat to thin out your uterine lining. Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, we will use a local anesthetic to numb you and no incisions will be made. Your cervix may be dilated if necessary. The technique is performed with a wand-like device that is placed inside your vagina and up into the uterus. With temperature-controlled heat, the NovaSure or TheraChoice will eliminate tissue within your uterine lining in just a few minutes. You may need to wear a pad if you have spotting or discharge afterward.
How long is recovery after ENDOMETRIAL ABLATION?
Following your endometrial ablation, you will have some side effects from the treatment. You may have spotting with or without a discharge, cramping, sensing an urge to urinate frequently, and feeling nauseous. If you have questions about how your body is responding to the ablation treatment, please call our office in Las Vegas or Henderson, NV for assistance. All of the above side effects are normal. However, if you feel that what you are experiencing is excessive or if you have a fever, please call. We will also have you back in the office for a follow-up appointment at your OBGYN's request.
Ablate the excess
Your treatment with the Novasure or ThermaChoice endometrial ablation will be a customized procedure for your endometriosis. Throughout your treatment planning session, we want your thoughts on your care. Please reach out at any time to our team and trusted OBGYNS if you have questions or concerns.
