Hysteroscopic resection of the endometrium is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of abnormal or excessive tissue from the lining of the uterus (endometrium) using a hysteroscope. This procedure is also known as hysteroscopic endometrial ablation.

During the procedure, a hysteroscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to the end, is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the uterus. The surgeon then uses specialized instruments to remove the abnormal or excessive tissue from the endometrium, typically using heat or electricity to destroy the tissue.


Hysteroscopic resection of the endometrium is often used to treat conditions such as heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, abnormal uterine bleeding, or endometrial hyperplasia. It is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, and can usually be done on an outpatient basis.

The procedure has a high success rate in reducing or eliminating abnormal uterine bleeding, and many women experience significant improvement in their symptoms after the procedure. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, such as bleeding, infection, or injury to the uterus or other surrounding organs.
