This procedure has become very popular for women with heavy bleeding. Dr. Rudman was one of the first in Santa Barbara to use the Novasure to perform this procedure. It is done in the out patient surgery department and the recovery is only a few days. Dr. Rudman has been doing the procedure for over 10 years with very few failures. Most women have a very light 2-3 day period after the procedure and some women have no further bleeding.
