What is Hysteroscopic Surgery?

Hysteroscopic surgery is a procedure in which a thin viewing tool called a hysteroscope is used to examine the lining of the uterus. The hysteroscope is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus, allowing the doctor to view the endometrium on a video screen.


Why need Hysteroscopic Surgery?

Hysteroscopic surgery may be necessary to investigate abnormal bleeding or postmenopausal bleeding. It is also used to diagnose and treat conditions that may affect fertility, such as uterine abnormalities. Additionally, hysteroscopic surgery can be used to remove growths in the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps. In some cases, it may be performed alongside laparoscopic surgery to address infertility concerns.

If infertility is a concern, a laparoscopy may also be performed concurrently with a hysteroscopy.
