Laparoscopic Surgery for Hysteroscopy in Noida

Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that enables a gynecologist to examine the inside of a woman's uterus using a hysteroscope, a thin tube-like instrument inserted through the cervix. This procedure can help diagnose and treat various uterus conditions, such as abnormal bleeding, fibroids, polyps, adhesions, and cancer.

Laparoscopic Surgery for Hysteroscopy

What is Hysteroscopy

A hysteroscopy is typically performed outpatient, meaning the patient does not have to stay overnight. Before the procedure, the patient is given anesthesia to reduce pain and discomfort. There are two types of anesthesia: general anesthesia, which makes the patient unconscious, and local anesthesia, which numbs the cervix and the surrounding area.

During the procedure, the hysteroscope is inserted into the vagina and passed through the cervix into the uterus. The hysteroscope has a light and camera attached to it, which enables the gynecologist to see the inside of the uterus on a monitor. The uterus is filled with saline solution to expand and make it easier to see. The gynecologist can then examine the uterus for abnormalities, take biopsies, and remove any polyps, fibroids, or adhesions.

Symptoms of Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy Symptoms

A hysteroscopy is usually recommended when a woman experiences abnormal uterine bleeding, such as heavy periods, bleeding between periods, or bleeding after menopause. It can also investigate infertility, recurrent miscarriages, and pelvic pain.

Other symptoms that may indicate the need for hysteroscopy include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Difficulty getting pregnant
  • Abnormal results on a pap smear or other tests
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain

Causes of Hysteroscopy

Many conditions can affect the uterus and may require a hysteroscopy. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Fibroids: Noncancerous growths in the uterus that can cause heavy bleeding, pain, and pressure on other organs.
  • Polyps: Small, benign growths that can cause irregular bleeding, pain, and infertility.
  • Adhesions: scar tissue that can form in the uterus after surgery, infection, or inflammation, which can cause pain and infertility.
  • Endometrial cancer: A type of cancer that affects the lining of the uterus, which can cause abnormal bleeding, pain, and weight loss
  • Endometrial hyperplasia: A condition in which the lining of the uterus becomes too thick, which can cause abnormal bleeding and increase the risk of developing cancer.

Pre-treatment preparation

Before the hysteroscopy, the patient will be advised to avoid eating or drinking for a certain period, usually 6-8 hours. They will also be asked to take a laxative or an enema to empty the bowels and ensure no stool in the rectum during the procedure. The gynecologist may also recommend taking pain medication or antibiotics before the procedure.

The patient should inform the gynecologist if they have any medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, or if they are taking any medications, including herbal supplements or over-the-counter drugs. They should also inform the gynecologist if they have had any previous surgeries, particularly those involving the uterus or cervix.

Treatment process

The hysteroscopy procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour to complete. During the procedure, the patient lies on their back with their feet in stirrups, similar to a pelvic exam. A speculum is inserted into the vagina to hold it open, and the cervix is cleaned with an antiseptic solution.

Post-Treatment Process

After the procedure, the patient will be moved to a recovery room and monitored by the healthcare team for a short period. Patients might sometimes feel cramping or mild discomfort for a day or two after the procedure. However, most patients can resume normal activities within a day or two.

The healthcare provider will provide detailed instructions on post-treatment care, including avoiding sexual intercourse, tampon use, or swimming for a few days after the procedure. Additionally, patients may need to avoid strenuous physical activities for a short period to prevent any complications.

If the patient experiences any symptoms, such as fever, severe pain, or heavy bleeding, they must contact their healthcare provider immediately.

Ideal Candidate for Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is an ideal treatment option for women experiencing various gynecological issues. The procedure is typically recommended when imaging tests such as ultrasound or MRI suggest an abnormality in the uterus. Some common reasons why a doctor may recommend hysteroscopy include:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Unexplained pelvic pain
  • Repeated miscarriages
  • Infertility
  • Removal of uterine fibroids
  • Endometrial polyps
  • Uterine septum
  • Women who have previously undergone abdominal or pelvic surgery or have a history of pelvic inflammatory disease may also benefit from a hysteroscopy.

Hysteroscopy Surgery

After surgery process

After hysteroscopy, if you were given anesthesia, you must stay in the hospital for a few hours before being discharged. Usually, an overnight stay is not necessary, but it may be recommended by your doctor if they are concerned about your reaction to anesthesia. You may experience mild cramping or vaginal bleeding for one to two days after the procedure. It is advisable to avoid sexual intercourse for 7 to 10 days. There are no significant post-operative precautions, so that you can resume your work and daily routine shortly after.
