The uterine septum can be resected by highly trained specialists using hysteroscopy. During this operation, either electricity delivered by a fine probe or a fine pair of operating scissors, is used to divide the septum. The resected septal edges then retract into the muscle of the womb thereby allowing the cavity to regain an almost normal volume and shape. This operation can be performed as a day-case but requires specialised equipment.
