Operative hysteroscopy

The inside of a woman's uterus has a special lining called the endometrium. That lining is unique because it responds to the hormones estrogen and progesterone that are produced monthly. There are a number of conditions that disrupt the endometrium and can lead to heavy or irregular periods or infertility. Operative hysteroscopy refers to a minimally invasive technique whereby such conditions can be treated on an outpatient or "day surgery" basis. The physicians at CLWH IVF center are trained to perform both routine and highly complex operative hysteroscopy.
