Oakwood offers newly approved permanent birth control treatment
Dr. Charles Cash, of Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center, is one of the first doctors in Michigan to perform and offer Essure, a new permanent birth control option for women. Currently, it is the first alternative to tubal ligation for women seeking permanent birth control. This procedure is only meant to be used by women who are certain they no longer want to have children.
Unlike, tubal ligation, the Essure procedure can be performed without general anesthesia and requires no incisions, cutting or burning of the tubes.
