Hysteroscopic Surgery

A hysteroscope is a telescope of up to 4mm in diameter which is passed through the uterine cervix to examine the internal or endometrial surface of the uterus.  Using this instrument a highly magnified view is obtained allowing the surgeon to remove fibroids and polyps, divide intra-uterine adhesions (Asherman's syndrome) and repair congenital abnormalities of the uterus.

Mr Lower was one of the first surgeons in London to use the micro-hysteroscope to avoid the need to dilate the cervix in order to obtain a satisfactory view of the cavity of the uterus. 

The short video below show a fibroid being resected from the wall of the uterus using a hysteroscopic resectoscope.
