Hysteroscopy also known as minimal invasive surgery (MIS), is performed for many non-gynaecologic and gynaecologic conditions with a purpose of diagnosis or treatment. Hysteroscopy involves insertion of a long thin fibre-optic based probe called Hysteroscope inside the uterus through Vagina. Hysteroscope has a high-resolution camera and high intensity light at the rear end which provides the real time picture of inside of the uterus. The diagnostic Hysteroscopy at the Best Centre for Hysteroscopy Lalbagh Road Bangalore has helped many surgeons in resolving the cause of infertility in many women by enabling them to treat conditions like endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease without surgery and faster recovery. Regional anesthesia is given to patient for successful completion of the procedure.
