When women are finished with childbearing and are experiencing heavy and/or irregular periods (menometrrorhagia) there is are 2 techniques performed now in the office under local anesthesia which can reduce menstrual flow dramatically and permanently. Dr. Lowney is the first gynecologic surgeon in New England and one of only a few gynecological specialists in the country to perform these 2 techniques in the office setting under local anesthesia. By doing these procedures under local anesthesia patients are not subjected to the risks of general anesthesia and there postoperative recovery is shortened. These 2 procedures take from 90 seconds to 10 minutes and have over a 90% success rate in alleviating heavy, painful periods forever.
