By placing a small, telescope-like device through the cervix into the uterus, a hysteroscopy enables your physician to see into the uterine cavity with clarity and provides him or her with a means to surgically treat any abnormalities.
Small problems like polyps or fibroids are often treatable with hysteroscopic surgery. This is a day surgical procedure, with minimal recovery times required. The procedure can be performed at PCRM (currently only available at our Burnaby location) or by a gynecologist at a hospital. At PCRM, the procedure is performed while the patient is awake, using some oral medications for gentle sedation and freezing around the cervix.
