This video, created by Nucleus Medical Media, explains the procedure of a Dilation and Curettage, known as a D & C. There are two variations of this procedure: Diagnostic and Therapeutic. The diagnostic version removes a small sample of the uterine lining for biopsy. The therapeutic version removes the entire uterine lining to treat an known issue.

D & C begins like a routine pelvic exam, but with anesthesia. A speculum is inserted, then dilating rods are used in sequence to open the cervix. A hysteroscopy may be performed at this point. Then a curette is used to complete the intended version of D & C.
