An operative hysteroscopy is used for the location and treatment of problems associated with the uterus, some of which may include submucosal uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, and other uterine anomalies. This gynecological procedure is minimally invasive. During the process, a special telescope-like instrument is inserted into the endometrial cavity through the cervix to directly inspect different types of intrauterine pathology. Here at the Women’s OB/GYN Center, we invite you to learn more about this procedure and how it may be able to help you.
How Exactly Does the Process Work?
Broken down, the term ‘hysteroscopy’ means ‘looking into the womb.’ And, in line with this definition, the operative hysteroscopy procedure involves the insertion of an endoscopic lens with a video camera into the endometrial cavity. Once deployed, this device can help medical staff to observe any number of aspects or complications in the area that may be causing problems. This process typically requires the application of regional or general anesthesia, and it can be performed as an outpatient procedure. When it comes to getting a close look at the health of your uterus, this procedure simply cannot be beaten.
