Hysteroscopy is one of the oldest diagnostic techniques in gynecology and surgical hysteroscopy has also been used for therapeutic purposes. Surgical hysteroscopy is a sophisticated surgical technique and it poses significant challenges for the surgeon who needs to have expert knowledge of the method because specific complications may occur.

In recent years, gynecological laparoscopy has attained major diagnostic and surgical importance for evaluating the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. This procedure therefore occupies an important place in gynecological operations with a broad surgical spectrum and low rate of complications.

Richard Wolf has cooperated closely with leading gynecologists to develop advanced instrument sets and system solutions for hysteroscopy and laparoscopy in specific applications. A top priority here has been to make a contribution to the further reduction of potential risks.

The benefits of these minimally invasive operations include significantly less pain and much less trauma for patients. They are associated with a reduction in post-operative complaints so that many interventions today can be performed in an out-patient setting or during a brief hospital stay.
