Hysteroscopic Endometrial Ablation
The hysteroscopic endometrial procedure is a surgical operation to remove the lining of your womb (uterus). Your doctor may recommend that you undergo the procedure if you have experienced prolonged heavy periods or if your periods exacerbate other health conditions, for example anaemia.
After undergoing the procedure most women experience a significant reduction in the frequency of their periods. For some women periods stop altogether.
The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and will be performed by a gynaecological surgeon. Your surgeon will insert a hysteroscope – a form of medical telescope – through your vagina and cervix into your womb. Fluid will be passed through this telescope to swell the womb. Finally, your surgeon will use laser light or electricity to remove the lining of your womb along with any polyps or small fibroids which have developed there.
At One Healthcare we can book you in to see a specialist Gynaecology surgeon, usually within 48 hours, for an initial consultation. The hysteroscopic endometrial procedure at the One Hatfield Hospital in Hertfordshire and the One Ashford Hospital in Kent.
