When you are suffering from unexpected uterine bleeding like bleeding in between periods, skipping periods or bleeding after menopause, we know that the inconveniences and pain associated with bleeding are just as troublesome as worrying about what underlying health concern is causing the bleeding. The specialized surgeons at MIRI can help you identify the cause of your abnormal bleeding in minutes with a simple procedure called hysteroscopy.
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery similar to laparoscopy that can determine the presence, size and location of fibroids, adhesions, septums or other conditions. During a laparoscopy, the surgeon inserts a long, thin tube with a camera and light into your vagina. If an abnormal condition is detected during this procedure, small instruments can be inserted through the tube in order to treat the identified condition in a procedure that’s called a dilation and curettage or D&C.
Advantages of Hysteroscopy
- Shorter recovery time
- Less pain medication needed after surgery
- Recover in your own home
