Gynae first in Scotland30th April 2008
A new sterilisation procedure for women has been made available for the first time in Scotland.
The 30-minute surgery-free hysteroscopic sterilisation procedure is being pioneered by a medical team at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh’s reproductive health outpatient department and is carried out by inserting coils into the fallopian tubes via a small tube. No incisions are needed in the abdomen as the tube is inserted through the cervix for the procedure, which does not require an overnight stay in hospital.
