Essure is a form of birth control that uses tubal occlusion (a form of female sterilization that utilizes a blockage of the fallopian tubes). You may have chosen to undergo sterilization with Essure and now feel that you would like to have it removed. Essure removal is extremely complex and should only be trusted to an expert in cosmetic and reconstructive vaginal surgery.
The Essure system was meant to be a permanent form of female sterilization. It involved placing metal coils inside the fallopian tubes. The metal coils would eventually cause the fallopian tubes to scar over, preventing sperm from reaching an egg, thus preventing pregnancy. The procedure did not require any incisions as it could be done vaginally.
The company that manufactured Essure has since ceased to make the Essure system. You may be reading this because you are one of the many women who has experienced painful side effects with Essure such as:

If you are having symptoms from Essure and wish to have it removed and do not want to get pregnant in the future, we can perform Essure removal and tubal occlusion. This must be done under general anesthesia and can take anywhere from 60 to 80 minutes.
The coils will be removed and any damaged tissue surrounding them. Your surgeon will preserve your fallopian tubes and blood supply as much as possible.
Essure removal is performed as an outpatient procedure. The incisions used to remove the Essure device are very small and many women can return to light activity within 2 to 3 days. Full recovery time can range from 1-2 weeks after Essure removal.
