While you are waiting for the results from your tests and lab work and your final consultation, you are invited to enjoy a light breakfast and the array of wellness services that are offered including free sessions with a skin specialist, a nutritionist, demonstrations of relaxation techniques, and a Tai Chi class. A 25-minute professional upper body massage may be added for $35.
Treatments for Heavy Periods
Hormonal imbalances, cancerous or non-cancerous growths, including fibroids or polyps and other conditions can cause heavy periods. Traditional treatments offered to women to reduce bleeding are drug therapy, thermal or cautery ablation, or hysterectomy. Memorial Women's Center also offers cryoablation, an effective, safe, easy-to-tolerate office treatment for heavy bleeding that uses sub-zero temperatures to thin the lining of the uterus.
CHI Memorial's Women's Center is located in the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center in the Memorial Plaza Building at 605 Glenwood Drive in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
