Genesys HTA Procedure Animation
The Genesys HTA System works by circulating heated saline throughout the uterus in order to ablate the lining of the uterine walls, also known as the endometrium. The procedure can be performed at the hospital or potentially in your doctor's office.1
Hundreds of thousands of women have been successfully treated by the HTA™ System. The majority of women see a dramatic decrease in the length and heaviness of their period.2 Once treated, most women no longer experience the symptoms or effects of a heavy period. Many women stop having their period altogether.1
In a clinical trial, after three years the majority of women reported a reduction of bleeding to normal levels or less.1 In patients that completed the study, 98% of women were satisfied with their periods.2
