Essure Permanent Birth Control
Essure is a non-hormonal permanent birth control procedure that can be done in the office. It is a gentle procedure that helps your body form a natural barrier against pregnancy. In 2002, Brian Levitt was the first private practice physician to offer Essure to patients following its FDA approval. This procedure is usually covered by insurance with minimal patient payment required. Patients typically return to normal activities within 1-2 days.
