Hysteroscopy is the exam of the inside of the cervix and uterus using a thin, lighted, flexible tube called a hysteroscope. Your healthcare provider inserts the device through the vagina. Hysteroscopy can be used to take a tissue sample (biopsy),remove polyps or fibroid tumors, prevent bleeding by destroying tissue using electric current, freezing, heat, or chemicals. Hysteroscopy can be done in doctor office or in an outpatient center. You may have local or no anesthesia. Procedures that are more complex may be done in the operating room under local, regional, or general anesthesia.
