During an operative hysteroscopy, your doctor will insert a hysteroscope into the vagina and through the cervix. Your doctor may utilize the hysteroscope as a diagnostic tool first in order to examine the uterus. In some cases, a video screen will aid in the procedure.
During an operative hysteroscopy, additional instruments may be placed through the hysteroscope to correct abnormal conditions discovered during the diagnosis process. In many cases, both procedures may be completed at the same time, eliminating the need for a second surgery.
