Infertility and the Reduction of Uterine Septum
For women faced with reproductive complications due to a congenital uterine abnormality, Physicians Regional Healthcare System is proud to offer a transcervical approach to uterine septum resection under fluoroscopic guidance – a simpler technique for reduction of uterine septum. For years, hysteroscopy has been the most commonly performed procedure to treat a uterine septum due to its advantages over traditional abdominal surgery, such as the convenience of having the procedure performed on an outpatient basis with minimal recovery time before allowing pregnancy. Since then, surgeons have discovered the transcervical approach, which offers the same advantages of hysteroscopy, but with the added benefits of shorter operative time (10-20 minutes), reduced cost and more consistent reproductive results. For all of these reasons and more, women have traveled from all over the country and even as far as Singapore to have this procedure performed at Physicians Regional.
