What is a hysteroscopy?
A hysteroscopy is a procedure where a doctor uses a thin, lighted tube known as a hysteroscope to look inside the uterus. It can be used both as a diagnostic tool and for treatment purposes. The doctor may also take tissue samples or remove growths such as polyps during the procedure.
How is the hysteroscopy performed?
The procedure is typically done in an outpatient setting with local or general anesthesia; recovery time is usually short. Overall, it is a safe and effective way for doctors to diagnose and treat issues related to the uterus.
What can I expect from the hysteroscopy procedure?
First, patients are evaluated by our team to determine if a hysteroscopy would be beneficial for their individual situation. Prior to the procedure, patients may need to stop taking certain medications and may also have to undergo a preparation process, such as taking medication or undergoing a special type of ultrasound. During the actual procedure, patients can expect some discomfort or cramping but should not feel any significant pain.
What are some potential benefits of a hysteroscopy?
Some potential benefits include being able to accurately diagnose issues related to the uterus, being able to remove growths or take tissue samples for further evaluation, and potentially even being able to treat certain conditions during the procedure itself.
