Hysteroscopy at Buckshaw Hospital

What is a hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy allows your surgeon to examine your uterus and treat any identified problems.

The procedure is carried out using a long and narrow telescope with a light and camera at one end, called a hysteroscope. This is carefully passed through your vagina and cervix, and into your uterus. No cuts to your skin are required for a hysteroscopy. Images showing the inside of your womb are sent to a monitor for your surgeon to see.

A hysteroscopy is carried out in an outpatient clinic using local or no anaesthetic in just five to ten minutes.

If treatment is required the procedure takes a little longer and is often performed as a day procedure in a hospital theatre under a local, regional or general anaesthetic. It may take up to 30 minutes to remove your fibroids or polyps using fine surgical instruments.
