My doctor said the only way to remove my Essure devices is by doing a hysterectomy, this seems at odds with what your web site says.
We have removed over 100 Essure devices using a microsurgical technique. Most of these were for patients who wanted to get pregnant again. If the patient just wants the devices removed and does not wish to get pregnant again, the operation takes about 45 minutes and costs $4500. There is an X-ray picture on one of our websites, pregnantagain.com, which shows both Essures still in the abdomen of a woman who had a hysterectomy to remove to remove them. She came here because her symptoms persisted and we removed both of them in a 24 minute outpatient operation.
Hysterectomy is not without risks. Statistics show that one patient in a thousand who undergoes a hysterectomy dies from the operation. Even if you have insurance that will pay for a hysterectomy, your deductible and lost wages will make our option less expensive. As with all our fees, a hotel stay and all professional fees are included. There are no extras, period!
