Hysteroscopy Surgery


Hysteroscopy surgery is a  safe, simple, minimally invasive, and daycare procedure. Hysteroscopy does not require any cuts and is a scarless procedure. It requires the use of slender and delicate instruments or hysteroscopy instruments alongside the hysteroscope. Hysteroscopy is a technological  miracle and a boon for diagnosis and treatment of many female concerns. Hysteroscopy is  often used by your gynecologist to examine the inside of the uterus in order to diagnose and treat some conditions of the uterus.

Office hysteroscopy is, as the name suggests, purely done in the consulting room itself by using a slender hysteroscope just 2 mm in diameter. It is mainly reserved for simple diagnoses of conditions like abnormal uterine bleeding or postmenopausal bleeding; or removal of a foreign body or a small polyp.

Operative hysteroscopy is used to treat various conditions causing either infertility or bleeding problems in a woman.  Operative hysteroscopy allows the surgeon to remove fibroid, adhesions, or septum or do metroplasty which is the correction of the abnormal shape of the uterus. These are.

Expert gynecologist Dr. Dimple Doshi at Vardaan hospital, Goregaon West, Mumbai has done thousands of successful hysteroscopies resulting in accurate diagnosis, treatment, and a great relief to the patients suffering from long-standing undiagnosed problems.
