She has been addressing women's health issues for over 20 years and recognizes that there are medical and surgical options for many symptoms that can have disruptive effects upon ones family, social life, daily activities, and mood. Often patients do not address these symptoms, as they do not understand that simple, safe and effective solutions exist.

In Dr. Faucher's experience, Menorrhagia (heavy periods) is one of these disruptive experiences. Menorrhagia is a serious medical condition that affects almost 20% of women. It is defined as unusually heavy and or long-lasting menstrual periods. Based upon your history and physical findings, your doctor can determine the best treatment options for you to consider.

NovaSure is one of several treatment options you and your doctor may consider. It is a brief, minimally invasive, procedure that successfully treats Menorrhagia (heavy periods) in up to 90% of cases. According to Dr. Faucher, "the procedure is brief, simple, safe and an effective treatment for heavy menstruation. NovaSure is an endometrial ablation procedure that delivers 90 seconds of precisely controlled radio frequency energy thru a thin handheld wand to remove (ablate) the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It can be done without general anesthesia and does not require incisions. Patients typically go home the same day and are back to work in 1 or 2 days."

Dr. Faucher has offered this attractive option to 100's of women and has reported excellent satisfaction. Arrangements have been made for the NovaSure procedure to be a treatment option you and your physician can consider at Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital.

Appointments can be established with Dr. Faucher by calling (707) 456-1100.

Her offices will be located at 1155 South Main Street, Willits, CA 95490
