What is TruClear?
TruClear hysteroscopes provide a minimally invasive solution for diagnosing and treating fibroids. TruClear is a new procedure where a clinician who’s received specific training in the technique uses a specially designed non-electrical mechanical resection device to cut away and remove the fibroid tissue.
What Happens During the Procedure?
The TruClear device is inserted through the vagina along with the hysteroscope camera. After the fibroids are cut out, most women return to normal activities within just a few days. This procedure is completely incisionless and is performed in an outpatient setting.
