    #91 - Exploring Fibroids and the Acessa Procedure with Denise Lyon

    In this episode, Dr. Amy Brenner, a seasoned surgeon specializing in women's health treatments, sits down with Denise Lyon, an expert on the innovative Acessa procedure for fibroids. Together, they delve into the complexities of fibroids, discussing their impact on women's lives, symptoms, and treatment options.

    Key Talking Points:

    Understanding Fibroids: Denise Lyon explains that fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus, influenced primarily by estrogen. They can grow in different locations—inside the uterine cavity (submucosal), within the uterine wall (intramural), or outside the uterus (subserosal)—each location impacting symptoms differently.

    Prevalence and Impact: Up to 77% of women may develop fibroids, often leading to heavy bleeding (menorrhagia), pressure symptoms, pain, and other discomforts affecting daily life.

    Treatment Options: Dr. Amy Brenner outlines a range of treatments from conservative approaches to more invasive procedures like hysterectomy. They discuss the benefits of Acessa, a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure designed to shrink fibroids without the need for major surgery.

    Acessa Procedure Explained: Densie and Dr. Brenner detail the Acessa procedure, highlighting its use of ultrasound to target and destroy fibroid tissue with minimal disruption. They compare it favorably to other treatments in terms of recovery time, pain management, and efficacy.

    Patient Considerations: The conversation covers why Acessa might be chosen over other methods, especially for patients with bulk symptoms or specific fibroid characteristics. Success and Recovery: They share data on Acessa's success rates, reduction in bleeding, and patient satisfaction, emphasizing its long-term benefits and quicker recovery compared to traditional surgeries.

    Patient Experience: Dr. Amy Brenner discusses what patients can expect post-procedure, including pain management, recovery timeline, and when they can anticipate relief from symptoms.

    Join Dr. Amy Brenner and Denise Lyon as they unpack the complexities of fibroids and explore how the Acessa procedure is reshaping treatment options for women seeking relief from this common condition.
