At Veritas Fertility & Surgery, we have extensive experience diagnosing and treating uterine isthmoceles. We recommend that any woman with abnormal bleeding or secondary infertility after a C-section be evaluated for a possible isthmocele with a saline infusion sonohysterogram. Our experience has demonstrated that this is a common condition and one that should be accurately diagnosed so that treatment options can be discussed.
Dr. Puthoff is one of just a few reproductive surgeons with extensive experience in the evaluation and treatment of uterine isthmoceles, especially among patients with infertility due to the condition. Effective surgical treatment of this condition can help restore optimal reproductive health, and women with infertility who have a uterine isthmocele repair have a 75-80% chance of subsequently achieving a healthy pregnancy.
