Dr. Danny Benjamin Is The First Physician In Michigan to Perform SONATA
MI Top Doc, Danny Benjamin, MD, FACOG is the first physician in Michigan to perform SONATA, a non-invasive treatment to significantly reduce uterine bleeding in women, caused by fibroids.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, more than 200,000 women each year are treated for uterine fibroids with hysterectomy, a significant surgical procedure to remove the entire uterus.
The incision-free Sonata Treatment addresses the growing preference of women and their gynecologists seeking less-invasive procedures that preserve the uterus.
Dr. Benjamin is now offering the Sonata Treatment as an incision-free outpatient procedure that may be performed without general anesthesia. Sonata uses a miniaturized ultrasound probe at the tip of the handpiece to locate fibroids and treat them from inside the uterus.
In a clinical trial, the Sonata treatment was proven to reduce symptoms while getting half of the treated women back to their normal activities the next day. The average return to normal activity was about two days.
“More and more women are looking for an alternative treatment to reduce the symptoms of bleeding and pain from fibroids. SONATA should be considered as an option after early diagnosis of fibroids before symptoms progress. Treating early may reduce the likelihood of a more invasive procedure at a later time. A non-invasive procedure such as SONATA may change the timing of when to treat, rather than the long-held view of ‘watch and wait’ until severe symptoms develop,” says Dr. Benjamin.
Dr. Danny Benjamin is a part of Metro-OBGYN which is located in Commerce Township. He is also the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital.
