Hysteroscopy, enable doctors to treat women for infertility and abnormal uterine bleeding, preventing major abdominal surgeries and saving the uterus from hysterectomy.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside the uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of infertility and abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus.
In India, more than 7,00,000 hysterectomy is done in women who are in perimenopausal age group and this is highest in the world. Over the past two decades operative hysteroscopy has emerged as a vital procedure for management of recurrent pregnancy loss, infertility and abnormal uterine bleeding. Hysteroscopy is now an important tool in contemporary gynecological practice and motivating them to learn hysteroscopy and do it in day today practice. The price of a sophisticated hysteroscope is just 25 percent price of an ultrasound machine so everyone can afford to own a diagnostic hysteroscope. Through this workshop, Bangalore society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology had made an attempt to impart the skills of this versatile technique to doctors said Dr Vidya V Bhat, President, BSOG.
Dr Osama Shawki commented, Due to the stressful life of woman today, the process to conceive, carry a baby full term and have a safe delivery is becoming a major challenge. I appreciate BSOGs contribution taken to spread awareness in the Indian medical fraternity.

Secretary, BSOG said It is a unique opportunity to have a renowned medical practitioner such as Dr Osama Shawki, Dr Vidyamani L and Dr Vidya V Bhat in our midst who demonstrated 11 cases and interacted with over 300 doctors.
