D & C

A D&C is a dilation and curettage surgical procedure. This procedure is done to remove the endometrial lining from the uterine cavity. It is minimally invasive and is done as an outpatient in the hospital setting. This can be done for diagnosis purposes and/or treatment purposes. There are several reasons why your physician could recommend a D&C. Often times a D&C is performed with other surgical procedures as well. Your physician can answer any questions you may have about D&Cs.
