Minimally Invasive Surgical Interventions
We are fortunate to be able to provide certain surgical procedures at our facility. These procedures include hysteroscopy, a procedure where an instrument is placed through the cervix, and the uterine cavity can be evaluated. Polyps, fibroids, septum or scar tissue inside the uterus can be removed, if such pathology is found. One needs to have a normal uterine cavity for an ongoing pregnancy. Another procedure that is available is a laparoscopy. During this procedure a small incision is made in the navel, and a laparoscope, which is much like a telescope, is placed to evaluate the pelvis. If there is any pathology found, treatment can be employed simultaneously. Both of these procedures require general anesthesia, are out patient surgery, and require about an hour of time, depending on the particular findings.
