Colposcopy Center

During a colposcopy procedure, the vulva, vaginal walls, and uterine cervix is examined to detect abnormalities that may suggest diseases. Tests performed during colposcopy include acetic acid wash, color filter, or biopsy of the cervix. Treatments for cervical abnormalities include:

  • carbon dioxide laser photoablation,
  • cryocautery,
  • LOOP (LEEP),
  • cold knife cone biopsy, or
  • hysterectomy.
The type of treatment depends upon the cervical abnormality. Colposcopy results could indicate dysplasia or cancer. Read more: Colposcopy Article
