Dilatation and Curettage in Bangalore at Genesis Hospital

Dilatation and curettage in Bangalore is available at the Bangalore Genesis Hospital. It is a therapeutic gynecological procedure involving the dilation of the cervix, and the removal of part of the lining of the uterus or the contents of the uterus by scraping or curettage.

Dilatation and curettage in Bangalore should be performed by a qualified gynecologist or surgeon as it is a delicate procedure. In fact, it is the standard procedure to deal with incomplete miscarriages in many countries.

Dilatation and curettage is commonly performed in the following cases:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding marked by unusually heavy menstrual flow
  • To remove excess uterine lining relating to conditions like aspolycystic ovary syndrome, where periods do not occur to remove the tissue.
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • To remove retained products of conception (POC), such as during a miscarriage.

Abnormal uterine bleeding can be caused by various factors, such as:

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometrial hyperplasia
  • Miscarriage

Procedures involved in dilatation and curettage at our hospital are:

  • General anesthesia or local anesthesia is administered.
  • A speculum is inserted to hold open the vaginal walls.
  • The opening of the uterus is stretched using tapering rods.
  • A curette is inserted into the uterus to scrape away the uterine lining.

Dilatation and curettage is a procedure with many risks. Some of the risks involved are:

  • Reaction to anesthesia
  • Infection
  • Uterine perforation
  • Intrauterine adhesion leading to complicated future pregnancies

Patients who have undergone a D&C procedure might also suffer from temporal cramps or backache. Vaginal bleeding or spotting which occurs for a few days is also normal. Patients are advised to abstain from having sex for around two weeks until the wound heals. Nevertheless, most women can return to work a day after the surgery, and surgery success rates are very high.

If you are unwilling to undergo a D&C, alternatives are available. A hysteroscopy is an alternative to D&C with lower risks. Miscarriages can also be treated using drugs, which are a safer, non-invasive method.

Reasons to go to Genesis Hospital for dilatation and curettage in Bangalore are as follows:

  • Highly experienced and well qualified surgeons are available to diagnose and treat specific gynecologic conditions.
  • Sterile and well-equipped operating theatres to ensure safe and smooth surgery.
  • Comfortable, hygienic wards for post operative care.
  • Affordable fees are charged for complex procedures.
