Operative Hysteroscopy

The purpose of an Operative Hysteroscopy may include  to remove parts of fibroids within the cavity of the uterus, remove polyps or  scar tissue, correct some abnormalities of the uterus which may inhibit  fertility, and to remove IUD’s.  A 9 mm  diameter rod-lens telescope with a channel for instruments, attached to a video  camera is passed through the cervix (or mouth of the womb).  The operation may be carried out using a  small wire loop, probe or scissors.   Occasionally a laparoscopy is required at the same time.
