Hysteroscopy And Laparoscopy Surgeries

BOOK APPOINTMENT

What Are Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Surgeries?

Infertility is symbiotic with anomalies in the womb or abdomen. Two primary procedures are employed to detect inconsistencies in these areas. A hysteroscopy is performed with the aim of examining potential problems in the uterus that may be leading to infertility. It is done using a fine device known as a hysteroscope, which is clipped with a tiny camera and light on its beak. It is then passed through the vagina, upwards towards the endometrium. Similarly, a laparoscopy procedure is a keyhole to a woman’s abdomen and pelvic region and is especially useful to treat cysts, endometriosis and fibroids, in addition to a host of other conditions. This technique uses a laparoscope, a lightweight tool that is inserted through incisions made in the abdomen, to view an array of organs.

Why Choose Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Surgeries?

A hysteroscopy and a laparoscopy usually go hand in hand, working together to provide your fertility consultant with a view of your endometrial landscape. There are several reasons why these procedures may be recommended.

Anomalies in Uterus

In some cases, the shape or size of the uterus may be out of the ordinary, proving hostile for an embryo. In other cases, the presence of scar tissue could be a hindrance to fertility. The hysteroscopy and laparoscopy procedures spotlight and treat anomalies like these.

Tubal Infertility

For women whose fallopian tubes are blocked at the uterine openings, natural conception may be hampered. By sliding fine tools through a hysteroscope, your fertility consultant may be able to open the fallopian tubes.

Recurrent Miscarriages

Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy procedures are also recommended if you have experienced recurrent miscarriages, or house small fibroids or polyps in your uterus. On Cloudnine, these twin techniques are useful tools in gauging the cause of infertility.

Are Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Surgeries Right for Me?

If you experience severe bleeding out of turn, or suffer from abnormal pain in your abdomen, it is recommended that you consult a gynaecologist. Although these conditions may not have a bearing on your fertility, your doctor may recommend hysteroscopy and laparoscopy routines to assess possible scenarios.

What Are the Steps of Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Surgeries?

Although hysteroscopy and laparoscopy routines are performed differently, they can be broadly broken down into five fundamental steps.

1

Opening

In a hysteroscopy, your doctor will first dilate the cervix, to allow it to become wide enough to accommodate a hysteroscope. In a laparoscopy, on the other hand, a tiny incision measuring about one centimetre is made in the abdomen, just north of the belly button.

2

Insertion of Hysteroscope

During a hysteroscopy, once the cervix is sufficiently widened, a hysteroscope is slid gently through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus. Likewise, a laparoscopy entails the insertion of a laparoscope through an incision in the abdomen.

3

Insertion of Carbon Dioxide

In a laparoscopy, your doctor will insert carbon dioxide through a tube, to inflate the abdomen. In a hysteroscopy, regular saline is instilled into the uterus to clear away any traces of blood or mucus.

4

Examination

Once the uterus has been expanded and cleansed, the small light attached to the beak of the hysteroscope or laparoscope is flicked on, allowing your doctor to assess the abdominal and uterine cavities.

5

Surgery

Sometimes, a procedure may reveal abnormalities in the abdominal cavity that need to be corrected through surgery. In such a case, your doctor may perform a small operation through the hysteroscope or laparoscope, using minute tools.

What Are the Risks of Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Surgeries?

Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy procedures are considered extremely safe, but invasive procedures, however routine, are prone to complications if not handled adequately.

Intrauterine Scarring

Both techniques present the risk of scarring or injury to the cervix, uterus or bladder if not done by a seasoned specialist. On Cloudnine, our team of fertility experts have years of experience performing these procedures and devote time to a guest before and after a surgery.

Infection

Invasive procedures like these could be potential triggers for infections if the tools used are not sterilised, or if the environment is contaminated. That’s why, our facilities are meticulously sanitised after every surgery and procedure, ensuring the highest standards of hygiene.

TESTIMONIALS

Cloudnine Helped Us Realise Our Long-Held Dream of Parenthood.
Dr. Radhika Sheth was our pillar of strength throughout our days of infertility. When we consulted her, she suggested that my wife and I pursue fertility treatment on Cloudnine. Cloudnine gave us the best of both worlds; the comfort of consulting Dr. Sheth and easy access to first-class amenities. Over the span of 4 months, we underwent 6 treatment cycles in order to beat our stubborn condition. And in the end, our persistence paid off. Thanks to Dr. Sheth, we conceived. We were so content with our experience, that we opted to continue our affiliation to Cloudnine with their signature maternity experience. After all, Cloudnine helped us realise our long-held dream of parenthood.

My fertility treatment plan on Cloudnine was composed of an HSG test followed by two IVF cycles. The experience was very good, and if it weren’t for the support and encouragement I received from the doctors and nurses, I wouldn’t have become a mother to my baby boy. I am thankful to Cloudnine for giving me the gift of motherhood.

I was referred to Dr. Uma Maheshwari early this year. At the outset, it was an emotional experience, but Dr. Maheshwari and all the nurses, especially Divya, Omana and Ranjitha, were warm and embraced me like they would, family. Dr. Uma was very caring and always remembered every little detail about my pregnancy. Best of all, she was available when we needed her.
I consider Cloudnine a very lucky place. I came here looking to go through fertility procedures and artificial conception but ended up conceiving naturally. I would recommend Dr. Maheshwari and her entire team to those looking for quality fertility solutions. Thanks to the entire team for taking such good care of me.

I opted to meet Dr. Radhika Sheth at Cloudnine Hospital, Malad, to discuss fertility treatment options. I knew I’d made the right choice when I discovered how approachable she was. She was very cooperative, always available, ever-smiling and full of positive energy. Not only did she suggest the right treatment plan for me, she worked hard to make me feel special along the way.

I am extremely pleased with the experience we had with Dr. Radhika Sheth. After having undergone fruitless fertility treatments for more than two years with other doctors, I was finally able to conceive after an IVF cycle administered by Dr. Sheth. Needless to say, she was very helpful and supportive throughout my treatment tenure. I am and always will be eternally thankful to Dr. Sheth for giving me my precious bundle of joy.

I am extremely happy with the treatment we received from Dr. Radhika Sheth and her team at Cloudnine Clinic. The doctor devoted ample time to hearing about our medical history, present problems and general issues we were facing. She was very understanding and would patiently answer all the questions we asked her. During the first visit itself, Dr. Sheth assured us that we would get pregnant; that there was absolutely no doubt about it. Hearing those words was a big relief and instantly boosted our confidence. We started our fertility treatment last year, after which, much to our delight, we finally conceived. We are eagerly awaiting our baby now and can hardly express our happiness in words. We consider ourselves very lucky that God directed us to Cloudnine Clinic.
Thanks to Dr. Radhika Sheth and her entire team for making our journey to conception worthwhile. Last but not the least, a big thumbs up to all the administration staff for the wonderful operational support.

I am very happy to share experience I had with Sure. I tried to conceive from past 1 year without any success. I had gone to many doctors in Bangalore and at my hometown but I couldn’t conceive. I came to know about Sure from Cloudnine hospital. I had posted a message for appointment and I immediately got a call from Sure. I was amazed with their immediate response. This experience continued. I got an appointment with Dr. Jyothi Menon and was very much satisfied with her answers during my first visit itself. I got confidence with her words. Based on her advice, we thought of going for a treatment at Sure. Her way of treatment was very good. We had to visit Sure 4-5 times in the first cycle. My first cycle at Sure was successful. I am 3 months pregnant now. I am very thankful to Dr. Jyothi Menon. Staff at sure are really caring, supportive and are cool in answering all the questions. Especially I need to mention about Swetha at reception. I had very good experience with her every time I go there. Ambience at sure is very good and hygienic. Nursing staff is also very caring.Overall it was a wonderful experience.
