Cervical Dysplasia

  • Usually only patients with High Grade or Moderate/Severe Dysplasia are offered this procedure. 
  • Patients with Mild or Low Grade Dysplasia typically are monitored with frequent Pap smears. 
  • The degree of Dysplasia is determined using a procedure known as Colposcopy

The LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure): 

  • A local anesthetic is injected into the cervix. Sedation is rarely necessary. 
  • A special wire loop is used to excise the abnormal cervical tissue. 
  • Medication and/or cautery is used to stop any bleeding after the excision. 
  • There are no restrictions after the procedure except you are unable to have intercourse for 4 weeks to allow the cervix to heal. 
  • You will be notified within a few days of the pathologist’s report and further management or treatment recommendations.
