Hysteroscopy And Laparoscopy
Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy are two common procedures and valuable diagnostic tools in the evaluation of infertility and can also be used to perform certain fertility treatments
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the doctor to examine the inside of the uterus using a thin, lighted tube called a hysteroscope. This procedure can help identify any abnormalities that may be impacting fertility, such as uterine fibroids, polyps, or adhesions, and can also be used to perform certain fertility treatments, such as removing polyps or correcting a uterine septum.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows the doctor to examine the pelvic organs, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus, using a thin, lighted tube called a laparoscope. This procedure can help identify any issues that may be impacting fertility, such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or adhesions, and can also be used to perform certain fertility treatments, such as removing adhesions or repairing a damaged fallopian tube.
