LowCountry Women's Specialists offers convenient and cost-effective outpatient alternatives for procedures previously only performed in a hospital operating room. As in-office services, these procedures require only a localized anesthetic instead of general anesthesia, and therefore, expose you to fewer medical risks. They also take less time, offer quicker recovery and usually cost less out of pocket.
Essure uses small flexible micro-inserts in your fallopian tubes that work with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. Unlike forms of temporary birth control, Essure does not contain any hormones that can interfere with your monthly cycle. And unlike tubal ligation, Essure does not require any incisions.
