Sonata treatment is a minimally invasive surgical method for the treatment of fibroids (benign tumors of the uterine wall). These fibroids occur in 2/3 of all women before menopause and only need to be treated if they cause symptoms. Possible complaints can be bleeding disorders, feeling of pressure, bladder and bowel emptying disorders and also unfulfilled desire to have children.
The Sonata probe, which is only a few millimeters in diameter, is inserted into the uterus through the vagina. Ultrasound is used to locate the fibroid and heat is applied to treat it. Several fibroids can be treated in the same operation.
In the course of the next menstrual cycles, the fibroid shrinks and the symptoms are relieved accordingly. The procedure is incision-free, does not cause scars and one can still get pregnant after the procedure. Moreover, one can return to one's private and professional life very soon after the surgery.
The hospitalization period is 2 days.
