Essure is permanent birth control for women who no longer want children. Our family care doctors use a hysteroscope to perform the procedure, which does not leave any surgical scars. If you are interested in exploring different methods of family planning, we will discuss Essure permanent sterilization with you.


Essure permanent sterilization is a non-reversible procedure that offers many advantages over traditional laparoscopic tubal ligation, including no general anesthesia, no abdominal incisions, less recovery time and less pain. If you choose to undergo the procedure, you will need to use a back-up method of contraception for the first three months.
