Your TRUCLEAR Procedure

TRUCLEAR is an incisionless procedure performed  in an outpatient setting or even your doctor’s office. Unlike many other treatments, the TRUCLEAR Procedure does not use electricity in the uterus. That means the risk of electrical burn injury to the uterus lining is eliminated. Plus, this process is typically faster than the electrical option which means less exposure to anesthesia.

Insertion of hysteroscope

Your doctor inserts the hysteroscope into the vagina, through the cervix, and into the cavity of the uterus. The hysteroscope contains a light and camera that allows your doctor to see inside your uterus. 

   
Hysteroscopy procedure

Saline fluid flows through a small channel in the hysteroscope, opening your uterine cavity so your doctor can better see and access the tissue that will be removed.

   
Removal of tissue

A specially designed instrument is inserted into the hysteroscope to remove the unwanted tissue.

   

After removing the tissue, your doctor will remove the instruments, completing the procedure. While recovery times vary by case, most patients are able to go home within a couple of hours and return to normal activities the next day.

Important Notes:
The TRUCLEAR Procedure is intended to remove intrauterine tissue; this tissue may be causing abnormal uterine bleeding or infertility. As with any procedure, there are potential risks with this procedure such as fluid overload and uterine perforation. Women who are pregnant, have a pelvic infection, or are known to have endometrial cancer should not have this procedure. Be sure to talk to your doctor to determine if the TRUCLEAR procedure is right for you.
