What is a Hysteroscopy?

This is a surgical procedure in which a lighted telescope-like instrument (hysteroscope) is passed through the cervix to view the inside of the uterus. 

Hysteroscopy can help diagnose and treat abnormalities inside the uterine cavity such as polyps, fibroids and adhesions (scar tissue).  These abnormalities can prevent pregnancy or contribute to the cause of miscarriage.
