Dilatation and Curettage Procedure

D&C Process

This process involves the opening or widening of the cervix to find the presence of any abnormal growth. A Hysteroscope containing a camera is inserted through the cervix to get a magnified view of the interior of a woman’s womb. 

Curettage is performed to remove growths like polyps or excess endometrium with the help of a curette, a suction tube or any other specialized tools.

Though it is completely a day care process, which is finished in less than 30 minutes, but the duration of the stay depends upon the patient’s condition after the procedure. Our specialist will evaluate whether the patient is fit enough to be discharged.
