Hysteroscopy

Services ⋅ Onsite Surgery

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that enables Dr. Bhatia to look carefully at the uterine lining using a thin viewing instrument (a hysteroscope).


How It Works:

The hysteroscope is inserted through the vagina and cervix and the procedure is performed in the doctor’s office.

Purpose:

Hysteroscopy helps to:

  • Identify the causes of abnormal bleeding. Dr. Bhatia can then pass heated instruments through the hysteroscope to stop the bleeding (Novasure Endometrial Ablation).
  • Find the cause of bleeding after menopause.
  • Determine the cause of infertility. Dr. Bhatia uses the test to examine the structure of the uterus and identify whether its structure or scar tissue is the reason for infertility.
  • Examine the uterine openings to the fallopian tubes. Again, this determination will help in diagnosing the reason for infertility.
  • Correct previously misplaced intrauterine devices (IUD).
  • Diagnose and remove small polyps or fibroids.
  • Place a contraceptive implant (Essure) into the opening of the fallopian tubes as a method of permanent contraception.

Patient Requirements:

Available for all patients.

Recovery:

Patients commonly experience mild cramping and/or discharge for a day or two after the procedure. Dr. Bhatia does prescribe mild pain relievers on a case-to-case basis. Most patients resume normal activities on the day following the procedure.
