Cervix Cryosurgery

Cervix cryosurgery may be used if a pap smear shows HPV. This treatment is performed right in a doctor’s office and is performed to destroy cervical cells that have become dysplastic, abnormal, due to the Human Papillomavirus. These abnormal cells are killed from freezing them using a cryoprobe, which is placed at the cervical opening. Cervix cryosurgery may be used if a pap smear shows HPV.

Cervix Cryosurgery

  -  

Pap Smear, HPV

The doctor uses the cryoprobe, which has liquid nitrogen running through it, to freeze cervical opening for 3 minutes and then after waiting for 10 minutes, will freeze it again for 3 minutes. There is no anesthetic required for this procedure and very little pain is felt. Cervix cryosurgery may be used if a pap smear shows HPV.
