Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy means “looking inside the uterus”. It is done by inserting a thin scope attached to a camera through the vagina and the cervical opening into the endometrial cavity (inside of the uterus).

An in-office hysteroscopy is done under local anesthesia and is perfectly safe. The local anesthesia will allow you to feel completely comfortable and aware of everything we are doing.

It is performed to evaluate or treat multiple conditions. The most common indications for performing hysteroscopy include:

  • Evaluating abnormal bleeding, including postmenopausal bleeding
  • Removing polyps
  • Removing fibroids
  • Removing foreign body, mainly retained IUD with lost strings or a malpositioned IUD
  • Removing uterine adhesions
  • Removing uterine septum
  • Performing endometrial ablation
  • Performing Essure tubal occlusion for sterilization

Due to the sophistication of this technology your treatment is done in-patient. The effects of the anesthesia will wear-off and you will be able return home.
