Summary of Hysteroscopic Surgery

Hysteroscopic surgery involves placing a small camera through the cervix to examine the inside of the uterus.  Specialised instruments can be passed through the camera which allows the surgeon to operate inside the uterus without an incision. This is usually performed under general anaesthesia.

Hysteroscopic Surgery

Hysteroscopy can be used for:
•   Assessment of uterine anatomy to evaluate structural abnormality ie septate uterus, polyp 
•   Treatment of heavy periods ie Endome trial ablation
•   Removal of polyps and fibroids
•   Removal of intrauterine adhesion

What should I expect during recovery?

•   You should be able to go home on the same day 
•   It is normal to have some mild cramping or a little bloody discharge for a few days after the procedure. 

You may be given  medication to help ease the pain.  If you experience a fever, chills, or heavy bleeding post operation, Dr Musa will review your condition and prescribe the next course of treatment.
