Laparoscopy surgery and hysteroscopy surgery are two common procedures performed to correct problems that cause infertility, miscarriage, and many other issues.
Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, is a diagnostic surgical procedure that is done to examine the abdominal and pelvic cavities, the ovaries and fallopian tubes, and the outside of the uterus. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that is done by making a small incision and uses a laparoscope to examine the abdominal organs. The laparoscope is a thin, long tube that is light-weight and has a high-resolution camera, which sends images to the monitor, allowing the doctor to take a closer look at the inside of your body.
If necessary, the doctor can then make surgical corrections to the pelvic structures that are damaged or abnormal.
This procedure is a much less-invasive procedure, which results in quick recovery and a lower risk for scar tissue formation. Laparoscopy is almost always done under general anesthesia and most patients are able to go home the same day and return to work a few days later.
A laparoscopy is helpful in a number of ways, including:

Hysteroscopy surgery is performed to examine the inside of a womb through a small camera inserted into the cervix and into the uterine cavity. This procedure is done under general anesthesia. Similar to a laparoscope, a hysteroscope is an instrument used to bring light to the cervix. It is a long, thin tube with a camera that allows your doctor to view the uterine cavity. If necessary, your doctor can correct the abnormality during the procedure. After the procedure, patients can go home the same day and can usually return to work the next day.
A hysteroscopy can help a number of abnormalities, including but not limited to:
