Dilation & Curettage Procedure
A dilation and curettage procedure, also called a D&C, is a surgical procedure in which the cervix (lower, narrow part of the uterus) is dilated (expanded) so that the uterine lining (endometrium) can be scraped with a curette (spoon-shaped instrument) to remove abnormal tissues. A suction D&C uses suction to remove uterine contents. A sample of uterine tissue is also taken and viewed under a microscope to check for abnormal cells. The procedure can be either operative or diagnostic.
Your doctor may perform the Dilation and Curettage along with another procedure called a hysteroscopy. A hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin tube that is inserted into the vagina in order to examine the cervix and the inside of the uterus.
Your doctor then views the lining of your uterus on a screen, noting any areas that look abnormal, making sure there aren’t any polyps and taking tissue samples as needed. During a hysteroscopy, your doctor can also remove uterine polyps and fibroid tumors.
