Dr. Givens is the first physician at Summerville Medical Center to perform the Acessa® procedure, a targeted solution to treat fibroids.
Designed to preserve healthy uterine tissue by focusing treatment only on the fibroid (versus cutting into the uterus or removing it completely), the procedure is minimally invasive, and women typically experience minimal discomfort with a quick return to work in 4-5 days. The Acessa® procedure optimizes imaging of the uterus (laparoscopic camera view and ultrasound view in real-time) to identify and treat nearly all locations of fibroids, including those outside the uterine cavity and within uterine walls.Dr. Givens is the first physician at Summerville Medical Center to perform the Acessa® procedure, a targeted solution to treat fibroids.
