Reproductive surgeries can correct anatomic problems which account for infertility. Many of these abnormalities can be corrected with minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. These surgeries offer the advantage of going home the same day after surgery and returning to normal activities within a week or two in most cases.
Hysteroscopy is an outpatient procedure in which a narrow fiberoptic telescope is inserted into uterus through cervix, to look for and sometimes remove adhesions inside the uterus. In addition, this procedure is used to diagnose and treat numerous disorders, including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, and uterine polyps.
Laparoscopy is an day care surgical procedure in which a narrow fiberoptic telescope is inserted through an incision near the navel to look for and sometimes remove adhesions in pelvic cavity, remove ovarian cysts or remove or repair a fluid-filled fallopian tubes (hydrosalpinx).
A testicular biopsy is a test to remove a small sample of tissue from one or both testicles and examine it under a microscope to evaluate a man’s ability to father a child.
