Advanced hysteroscopic surgery
Not all surgery is performed through the tummy. In Gynaecology I commonly use advanced hysteroscopy techniques to perform operations inside the cavity of the womb. Here a telescope is inserted into the womb through the vagina. The cavity of the womb is then visualised and a variety of surgery can then be performed including:
- Endometrial ablation to deal with heavy periods.
- Removal of fibroids in the cavity of the womb
- Removal of scar tissue in the cavity for managment of AShermans Syndrome
- Resection of partition ( septum) in the cavity of the womb
Most patients are discharged on the same day with minimal discomfort. The recovery and return to work is usually quick.
