Sonata Patient Webinar with Dr. Shashoua

The Sonata Treatment is an incision-free solution, clinically proven to reduce fibroid symptoms. This treatment can address a wide range of fibroid types, sizes, and uterine locations. Multiple fibroids can be treated during the procedure. The fibroids are treated from inside the uterus, so there are no incisions (which means no scarring), no tissue needs to be cut or surgically removed – and the uterus is preserved.

The Fibroid Treatment Collaborative was selected as one of the first sites to offer this innovative treatment for fibroids.

Sonata – How it works

The Sonata Treatment uses a handpiece with a miniature high-resolution ultrasound tip that allows the doctor to see the fibroids from inside the uterus during the procedure, and then treat each fibroid with a process called an “ablation.”
