Hysteroscopy

If any uterine abnormalities are identified by the uterine diagnostic procedures, such as a hysterosalpingogram, saline sonogram or diagnostic hysteroscopy, they can be surgically corrected with operative hysteroscopy.  During this outpatient surgery, a  hysteroscope is inserted vaginally through the cervix, in order to visualize the inside of the uterine cavity.  The abnormality can be directly visualized after expanding the cavity with fluid or CO2. The next step  involves placing certain instruments through ports in the hysteroscope that allow Dr Jacobs  to cut, cauterize, or remove pathology such as endometrial  polyps, submucous fibroids, uterine adhesions or a septum.
