Services Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a same-day procedure used to diagnose or treat conditions of the uterus, such as abnormal or heavy bleeding. This in-office procedure uses a thin, lighted telescope called a hysteroscope. During this procedure, the hysteroscope is gently slid into your vagina to allow us to examine your cervix and the inside of your uterus.

This exam helps us to better understand and diagnose your condition, and determine next steps to getting you back to healthy. This innovative tool gives the doctor the ability to see and work with little or no discomfort to you.

Our doctors use hysteroscopy to better determine the causes of, and treat, your condition. This might include:

  • Irregular or abnormal bleeding
  • A displaced IUD (intrauterine device)
  • Infertility
  • Abnormal or unusual growths

You may be given a sedative to help you relax and a local or general anesthetic. If you are given general anesthesia, you will not be awake for the procedure. Through the telescope, your doctor can see the inside of your uterus and the openings of the fallopian tubes.

If a biopsy or other procedure is necessary, small instruments can be run through the hysterscope.

Hysterscopy is a common, safe and effective procedure. However, like any medical procedure, there is a small risk of complications.

Talk with your provider to learn more.

Hysterscopy is generally performed at one of our clinics in Maple Grove, Blaine, Crystal, and Plymouth.

We will call you to schedule your appointment, which will be during a time when you don’t have your period. Your doctor will discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you have.

Shortly following the procedure, you should be able to go home. You may experience mild cramping or bloody discharge; this is normal. If you have follow up questions or concerns, talk with your provider or our helpful triage nurses.
