Endoscopic Surgery for Fertility Treatment

  • Uterine problems such as endometrial polyps, a uterine septum or intrauterine scar tissue can be treated with hysteroscopic surgery.
  • Endoscopic surgery is a surgery in which long telescope like instruments are used through small incisions or natural body openings in order to diagnose and treat disease. Another popular term is minimally invasive surgery (MIS), which emphasizes that diagnosis and treatments can be done with reduced body cavity invasion.
  • Commonly performed endoscopic surgeries in infertility management are laparoscopy (instrument introduced through the abdomen to visualize the womb and its surroundings like the fallopian tube and ovaries from above) and hysteroscopy (instrument introduced through vagina and cervix to visualize the inside of the womb). Both of these can be either diagnostic (to diagnose the cause leading to infertility) or operative (to treat the condition leading to infertility)


Like any other surgery, expect some pain with endoscopic too; however, the intensity wouldn’t be much. The intensity of the pain would depend on the place of surgery and how far the incisions are made.

Advantages Of endoscopy surgery in fertility treatments are:
  • Quality visualization of abnormalities in the internal reproductive organs like fallopian tubes, ovaries, the outer surface of the uterus, pelvis
  • Less bleeding and complications
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Fewer scars

The different types of gynaecological endoscopy are –Hysteroscopy: Used to diagnose Endometrial polyps, Submucosal fibroids, Adhesions, Septum or partitions, Endometriosis, etc.Laparoscopy: Used to diagnose Uterine fibroids, Pelvic adhesions, Endometriosis, Ovarian cysts, etc.
