Bottom Line: Hysteroscopic surgery is pivotal in management of many gynecological pathologies.AHS is a minimally invasive procedure that preserves the uterus in most cases.Whilst the outcome is of paramount importance, proper training should be adopted and followed through so that doctors, nurses, and institutions may deliver the highest standard of patient care.

ABSTRACT
Hysteroscopic surgery is pivotal in management of many gynecological pathologies. The skills required for performing advanced hysteroscopic surgery (AHS), eg, transcervical hysteroscopic endometrial resection (TCRE), hysteroscopic polypectomy and myomectomy in the management of menorrhagia, hysteroscopic septulysis in fertility-related gynecological problems and hysteroscopic removal of chronically retained products of conception and excision of intramural ectopic pregnancy ought to be practiced by contemporary gynecological surgeons in their day-to-day clinical practice. AHS is a minimally invasive procedure that preserves the uterus in most cases. Whilst the outcome is of paramount importance, proper training should be adopted and followed through so that doctors, nurses, and institutions may deliver the highest standard of patient care.

Mentions: Hysteroscopic surgery is pivotal in the management of many gynecologic pathologies. The skills required to perform advanced hysteroscopic surgery (AHS)—for example, transcervical hysteroscopic endometrial resection (TCRE), hysteroscopic polypectomy, and myomectomy in the management of menorrhagia1; hysteroscopic septolysis in patients with fertility-related gynecologic problems2; hysteroscopic removal of chronically retained products of conception (placenta accreta)3; and excision of intramural ectopic pregnancy4—ought to be practiced by contemporary gynecologic surgeons in their day-to-day clinical practice. AHS is a minimally invasive procedure that preserves the uterus in most cases.5 We suggest a logarithm of training in workshops, including virtual reality (VR), before embarking on operations in the operating room (Figure 1).
