Hysteroscopy is a medical procedure performed to examine and, in some cases, treat the inside of the uterus. It is carried out using a tool called a hysteroscope, which is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus.
Hysteroscopy treatment refers to the intrauterine procedures performed with the assistance of a hysteroscope. These procedures may include the removal of uterine polyps, fibroids, adhesions, or abnormal tissue growth, as well as procedures like endometrial ablation or sterilization.
Hysteroscopy treatment is typically conducted under mild sedation, and the images of the inside of the uterus are displayed on a screen during the procedure. Hysteroscopy is a traditional method for surgical interventions, and various techniques, including mini-hysteroscopy, offer less invasive alternatives.
