Operative hysteroscopy is a gynecological procedure that involves the insertion of a thin rod with a lens attached to a camera, called a hysteroscope, into the endometrial cavity. Hysteroscopy allows the gynecologist to visualize the membrane lining of the uterus. Operative hysteroscopy allows both the evaluation and treatment of various intrauterine conditions that cause abnormal uterine bleeding or inhibit embryonic implantation. Through operative hysteroscopy, abnormal intrauterine growths such as fibroids (myomata) or polyps can be removed, congenital uterine defects can be excised, or corrected, and endometrial ablation can be performed to control excessive uterine bleeding and more. Sometimes a dilatation and curettage ("D and C") are performed right after the hysteroscopy, while the patient is still under anesthesia, usually for women with abnormal uterine bleeding.
Dr. Selub is specially trained to perform operative hysteroscopy as a part of the comprehensive fertility treatment services she offers at the Florida Institute for Reproductive Sciences and Technologies.
What to Expect if you Undergo Operative Hysteroscopy:
Many patients become fearful when they hear certain words — and "operative" is often one of them. If you’re a candidate for operative hysteroscopy, there is a lot of good news to assuage your worries. For one, Dr. Selub is specially trained to perform operative hysteroscopy. The procedure may be necessary as a part of the comprehensive fertility treatment services she offers at the Florida Institute for Reproductive Sciences and Technologies. Operative hysteroscopy is minimally invasive and has improved tremendously over time in conjunction with technological advances. Modern science has made operative hysteroscopy, by and large, an outpatient process — you’re in and out in less than a day and no overnight stay is required. The procedure is performed in a same-day surgery center and patients can generally return to normal activity the day after the operation.
