This is a key-hole surgery used to check if the internal lining of the womb fine.
Hysteroscopy is done under general anaesthesia as a minor surgery, but can also be done under sedation as an office procedure.
The hysteroscope is a camera that is introduced in the uterus (womb) through the cervix.
To avoid doing un-necessary operative procedures, we first do a 3D pelvic ultra-sound scan and even a saline-contrast scan to identify any poly or fibroid in the uterine landing.
Hysteroscopy also allows us to do surgical procedures such as removing septae in the cavity or polyps or cutting adhesions (typically caused by infections) etc.
