Hysteroscopy is a simple procedure that allows your gynecologists' to look inside the uterus and diagnose and treat problems of the cervix and the uterus. In this procedure, a small-diameter device called a hysteroscope, which comprises a camera and a small light at the end, is inserted through the cervix into the uterine cavity to thoroughly examine the uterus.
What is a Hysteroscopy?
A thin, light tube with an inbuilt camera and light is inserted through the vagina to thoroughly examine the cervix and uterus during hysteroscopy. It is used as both a diagnostic and treatment process to treat issues such as submucous fibroids, the uterine septum, intrauterine adhesions, the removal of endometrial polyps, and so on.
