Hologic Myosure Tissue Removal System - The Myosure tissue removal procedure is a hysterscopic treatment that targets and removes uterine tissue, including fibroids and polyps. This can enable many women suffering with abnormal uterine bleeding symptoms caused by polyps or fibroids to be effectively treated without having to undergo major surgery to possibly remove the entire uterus. Because of this, the uterus form and function are retained and as a result, may preserve chances to have children in the future. It is estimated that the use of this system would exceed 50 procedures per year and would be utilized by both Dr. Duckitt and Dr. Adelasoye.

The organizations current sources of funding are

Campbell River Altrusa and Grieg Seafood.
