Since 2011 and after completing his postgraduate training in Boston, USA, he has been applying to Greece a pioneering, minimal invasive technique for the treatment of dealing with the pathology of the endometrial cavity(endometrial polyps, submucosal fibroids), the invasive hysteroscopy via a hysteroscope morcellator, which removes all those endometrial polyps and submucosal fibroids, without electricity usage, just with a rotary mechanical motion on one or two axles (front-back and left; right hand).
The hysteroscope morcellator has a diametre of 5 mm with a capacity to increase it to 9 mm it is extremely small and does not require dilatation of the cervix to be inserted into the uterus. The surgery could be performed by either local or general anesthesia accordingly the size of the construct to be removed.
It is an exceptionally safe technique, fast and atraumatic, since the the resection of the polyps or fibroids is via ro- tationally cutting and no electricity is used; in so doing, complications arising from electricity are thoroughly minimised, like: drilling uterus or burning damage of the endometrial.
The distention medium used is saline and this particular device has an advanced system of calculation of intakes of liquids, in order to avoid the risk of overloading women with liquids. The surgery is an outpatient procedure, performed in conditions ODC-Day and requires eve of patients for two hours around the clinic.
