Based in Plano, TX, Keith Reisler, MD, has almost 30 years of experience as an ob-gyn and is regularly recognized as one of the best doctors in America. In addition to offering comprehensive ob-gyn services, Dr. Keith Reisler has specialized training in minimally invasive procedures, such as the hysteroscopic resection of uterine fibroids.

Hysteroscopic resection is most often used for fibroids located under the inner wall of the uterus that have grown into its inner cavity. The procedure is performed via the patient’s birth canal and involves no external cuts. Many patients are able to go home the same day, with little to no pain from the procedure.

Unlike laparoscopic procedures, which often require several incisions and may keep patients in the hospital overnight or longer, hysteroscopic procedures are performed with a small camera that has a surgical loop attached to its end. In addition to a quick recovery time, hysteroscopic resection maintains the integrity and function of the patient’s uterus so she can still become pregnant and have a normal pregnancy. However, the procedure is not without side effects, and light bleeding for up to four to six weeks is normal.
