Essure® is a procedure that is completed by using a hysteroscope. Small permanent “plugs” (microinserts) are placed into the fallopian tubes from inside the uterus, using a vaginal approach. This means sterilization can be performed without an incision on the abdomen and without general anesthesia. The procedure is very effective and can be performed either in the office or at an outpatient surgery center. Most patients can return to work the next day.
