We perform the following diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as same-day procedures on the recommendation of a specialist.
- Endometrial biopsy: A sampling technique that makes histological examination of the uterine lining possible. During the procedure, we insert a flexible tube through the cervix into the uterine cavity, and through this we suction out uterine lining tissue. Uterine injury or inflammation may occur during the procedure. The risk involved in the procedure is not greater that the risk for “traditional” curettage.
- LOOP Conization: We perform conization under general anesthesia, during which we cut out a cone around the cervix. With loop conization there are no stitches, because the electricity running through the electric knife cauterizes the incision. We send the tissue removed by the conization for detailed processing, that is, for histological examination, during which the final diagnosis can be established.
- Cervical polyp removal: The polyp can be removed by curettage or hysteroscope, under brief general anesthetic. We send the tissue removed for histological examination.
- Abrasion: The essence of the procedure is to empty the uterine cavity through the vagina and cervix in order to take a sample of the endometrial layer. We perform the short procedure in a few minutes, under general anesthesia.
- Hysteroscopy: When examining the uterine cavity we can detect fibroids, polyps, and adhesions in the uterus that can cause infertility on their own. In our office, we use a gentle, painless form of hysteroscopy, Office-Hysteroscopy. During this procedure we guide a thin, flexible implement into the uterine cavity. The examination takes only 15-20 minutes, including preparation time.
- HyCoSy – Fallopian tube exam: On its natural route, an ovum journeys through the Fallopian tube into the uterine cavity. If the Fallopian tubes are blocked, the ovum cannot reach the uterus and it’s impossible to become pregnant. The Fallopian tube exam involves filling the uterine cavity and the Fallopian tubes with contrast dye using a probe. This has two purposes; on the one hand, for examining the internal structure and passability of the uterine cavity and the Fallopian tubes, and on the other hand, injection of the contrast dye can make mildly adhered Fallopian tubes passable.
We also perform instrument-assisted abortions and surgical completion of spontaneous miscarriages.
