Secure and safest surgery of Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis in Goregaon, Mumbai
What is Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis?
Adhesions are bands of scar-like tissues that form between two surfaces inside the body and make them stick together. When such bands develop inside the uterus the condition is called Asherman syndrome. Ashermans syndrome is now being increasingly diagnosed due to the use of hysteroscopy.
The scarring can be mild with thin stretchy tissues or severe with thick bands of adhesions causing total destruction of the uterine cavity.
These intrauterine adhesions can be cut or removed using hysteroscopy. This procedure is called hysteroscopic adhesiolysis.
