A loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is a technique for further diagnosis and treatment of cervical dysplasia. It involves the use of a thin, low-voltage electrified wire loop to cut out abnormal tissue. The surgeon is able to send the excised tissue to pathology for further evaluation, allowing for a more accurate assessment of the abnormal area.
The physicians at Advanced Ob/Gyn perform LEEP procedures in the office with different forms of anesthesia. Please call 713-465-5966 to meet with them to discuss if this treatment option is right for you.
