Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows a doctor to look at the inside of the uterus. During hysteroscopy, a lighted viewing instrument (hysteroscope) is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus.

Hysteroscopy is done to examine the lining of the uterus (endometrium), help collect a biopsy sample, and guide surgery to remove growths in the uterus. It usually is done while the woman is unconscious (general anesthesia), although a local or spinal anesthetic may be used. A gynecologist or surgeon performs the procedure, which usually takes 30 to 45 minutes. The woman can usually go home the same day.
