Cervix Cryotherapy

For abnormal or dsyplastic cells of the cervix, cryotherapy under colposcopy instrumentation may be used to expel the cells impaired by HPV. Also known as cryosurgery, this treatment is used to destroy cervical dysplasia in women. During the procedure a metal probe is inserted into the vagina and held against the cervical opening. The probe becomes extremely cold then from liquid nitrogen, freezing the cells it touches. For abnormal or dsyplastic cells of the cervix, cryotherapy under colposcopy instrumentation may be used to expel the cells impaired by HPV.

Cervix Cryotherapy

  -  

Colposcopy, HPV

The probe will be held there for six minutes total, over two different intervals. The body will then expel the cells that are killed within 2-3 weeks. This treatment is most commonly used for mild cervical dysplasia and has few risks involved. For abnormal or dsyplastic cells of the cervix, cryotherapy under colposcopy instrumentation may be used to expel the cells impaired by HPV.
