Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy – a telescope is inserted through the vagina into the uterus to visualise the uterine cavity.  This is usually performed with a laparoscopy to determine: the size and depth of the uterine cavity, the presence of congenital abnormalities, polyps, or fibroids, the appearance of the endometrium (lining of the uterus).

Dilatation and curettage (D & C) may be performed if indicated.

A video and/or photographs may be taken during surgery, and used to aid discussion at your

post-operative visit.
