Fertility Surgery: Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is another minimally invasive surgical technique which is often useful in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. It does not involve an incision since the hysteroscope (a similar long narrow instrument with a lens at one end) is inserted directly into the uterus via the cervix. Through the hysteroscope, safe and effective treatment of problems such as fibroids, polyps, intra-uterine septum or intra-uterine scar tissue (a.k.a. Asherman’s syndrome) can be achieved.
