The Essure procedure is a safe, effective alternative to traditional tubal ligation. Essure provides permanent, non-reversible sterilization without requiring incisions or punctures in the skin. This procedure is done in the comfort of our office using mild anesthetics for pain management. Because it does not require any incisions, patients are able to return to their usual lifestyle within 24 hours. You can find more information on this procedure at The Essure Procedure.
