OB-GYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi explains that although Joan will require surgery to correct her partially torn patellar tendon, torn ligament and dislocated knee cap, the team first needs to get Joan’s bleeding under control to avoid having to perform a blood transfusion. She recommends removing Joan’s uterine polyps and performing an endometrial ablation, in which saline is pumped into the uterus, heated and circulated to remove the lining of the uterus and effectively stop the bleeding.
Watch as Dr. Aliabadi performs the ablation procedure. Plus, see how orthopedic surgeon Dr. Derek Dee fixes the damage to Joan’s knee.
