During an office hysteroscopy, the doctors at Veritas Fertility and Surgery insert a small, lighted telescopic camera through the cervix and into the uterine cavity. A saline solution is used to expand the uterine cavity for a clearer view. With this procedure, uterine abnormalities such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions and inflammation of the uterine lining can be identified. If adhesions or polyps are present, Dr. Puthoff or Dr. Yeung can remove them during the office hysteroscopy in most cases. If more significant uterine abnormalities are found, such as fibroids or a uterine septum, then a procedure to treat these can be scheduled in a surgery center or hospital. Even in these cases, the office hysteroscopy still provides valuable information to guide decision-making for a subsequent procedure.
