Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, Dilation and Curettage (D and C), Removal of uterine fibroids (myomectomy)
Laparoscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in the abdomen and pelvis through small incisions with the aid of a camera. Laparoscopic procedures improve the health of a patient by diagnosing and treating gynecological disorders. Treatment procedures may include removal of abnormal tissue, lesions, or dissolving tissue adhesions.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that improves health by diagnosing and treating problems of the uterus in women of all ages. Hysteroscopy is performed using a thin tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. This minimally invasive procedure allows the surgeon to simultaneously diagnose and treat issues such as uterine disorders, including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, polyps and potentially cancer.
Dilation and Curettage is a procedure performed to remove tissue from inside of the uterus to provide samples for diagnosing or treating some uterine conditions including heavy vaginal bleeding, post-menopausal bleeding, and hyperplasia.
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids (leiomyomas). These are common noncancerous growths that appear in the uterus. The removal of these fibroids has reported improvement in fibroid symptoms, including decreased heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure. Having a myomectomy versus having a hysterectomy allows for the preservation of the uterus thus allowing the women to still bear children.
