Hysteroscopy

In a similar technique to laparoscopy, a hysteroscopy uses a small telescope (a hysteroscope) to look into the uterine cavity for polyps, fibroids, adhesions or any congenital anomalies.

It is commonly used to investigate fibroids or scarring in the uterus, including Asherman’s Syndrome (indicated by adhesions or scar tissue in the uterine cavity, typically as a result of damage following a D&C or miscarriage). These cannot be reliably diagnosed with an ultrasound, and a hysteroscopy is usually required.

You will need to have a general anaesthetic for your hysteroscopy, and Dr Kemball performs hysteroscopy procedures at St George Hospital or City East Specialist Day Hospital in Maroubra.
