Operative Hysteroscopic Procedures in Indore

Operative Hysteroscopic Procedures in Indore 

Operative hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat various gynecological conditions affecting the uterus and uterine cavity. Unlike traditional open surgery, which requires incisions in the abdomen, operative hysteroscopy is performed using a thin, flexible instrument called a hysteroscope, which is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. At our clinic in Indore, we offer a range of operative hysteroscopic procedures to address common gynecological issues and improve women’s health and well-being.

Conditions Treated with Operative Hysteroscopy

Operative hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of gynecological conditions, including:

1. Uterine Polyps: Small growths or benign tumors that develop on the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium) and can cause abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, or recurrent miscarriages.

2. Endometrial Hyperplasia: A condition characterized by abnormal thickening of the endometrial lining, which can lead to heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding and may increase the risk of endometrial cancer.

3. Submucosal Fibroids: Noncancerous growths that develop within the uterine wall and protrude into the uterine cavity, causing symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, or infertility.

4. Asherman’s Syndrome: Scarring or adhesions within the uterine cavity, typically caused by previous uterine surgeries or infections, which can lead to menstrual abnormalities, infertility, or recurrent miscarriages.

5. Uterine Septum: A congenital abnormality characterized by a band of tissue or muscle that divides the uterine cavity, increasing the risk of infertility, miscarriage, or preterm birth.

Types of Operative Hysteroscopic Procedures

Operative hysteroscopy can be used to perform a variety of surgical interventions to treat gynecological conditions, including:

1. Polypectomy: Removal of uterine polyps using specialized instruments such as graspers, scissors, or a resectoscope, which allows for precise excision of the polyp tissue while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue.

2. Myomectomy: Removal of submucosal fibroids or other abnormal growths within the uterine cavity using techniques such as cutting, shaving, or vaporization, which helps restore normal uterine anatomy and function.

3. Endometrial Ablation: Destruction or removal of the endometrial lining using energy-based techniques such as laser, radiofrequency, or thermal ablation, which can help alleviate symptoms of heavy menstrual bleeding or endometrial hyperplasia.

4. Adhesiolysis: Surgical lysis or removal of intrauterine adhesions or scar tissue using hysteroscopic instruments, which helps restore normal uterine anatomy and function and improves fertility outcomes.

Frequently asked questions

Operative hysteroscopy is typically performed under general anesthesia or conscious sedation, which helps minimize discomfort during the procedure. Most patients experience only mild cramping or discomfort afterward, which can be managed with pain medications prescribed by your surgeon.

Recovery times vary depending on the type and complexity of the procedure performed, but most women can expect to resume their normal activities within a few days to a week following the procedure. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for postoperative care, including activity restrictions, pain management, and follow-up appointments.

Like any surgical procedure, operative hysteroscopy carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, uterine perforation, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, these risks are relatively low, and your surgeon will take steps to minimize them during the procedure.

Before undergoing operative hysteroscopy, your surgeon may recommend certain tests or evaluations to assess your pelvic anatomy, uterine cavity, and overall health. These may include a pelvic examination, ultrasound, hysterosalpingogram, or imaging studies such as MRI.
