Cervical Leep Procedure

Cervical Leep Procedure

A cervical leep procedure may be performed by a physician following a Pap smear resulting in ASCUS. When doctors perform a loop electrosurgical excision process they uses a thin wire that is attached to an electrosurgical generator. The generator transmits a painless electrical current that cuts away the abnormal tissue on the cervix where the wire loop is passed through. A cervical leep procedure may be performed by a physician following a Pap smear resulting in ASCUS.

Pap Smear, ASCUS

This process also allows your physician to send the removed lesions to a lab for further evaluation which determines if the whole abnormal area was removed, and allows for a more accurate assessment of the abnormal area, specifically if cancer is present. This process takes about 20-30 minutes. A cervical leep procedure may be performed by a physician following a Pap smear resulting in ASCUS.
