  • Overview

    The ability to perform in-office minimally invasive procedures (MIS) has revolutionized the approach to abnormal uterine bleeding in women, giving them options for fast trauma-free assessment and management of their complaints. However, nearly 150 years after the first hysteroscopic procedure, MIS are still most commonly performed in the hospital setting, increasing the cost of care and causing avoidable delays in management due to the need for multiple appointments. 

    This activity will examine practical strategies to address the current barriers that OB/GYNs face when setting up in-office MIS and address why more aren’t being performed in the community setting.
