Colposcopy

A colposcopy is the area of medicine that deals with the examination of the cervix or the neck of the womb.

If a smear test has previously been performed that has shown abnormal cells in the cervix then this will be the procedure that is advised. 

The procedure usually takes between 15 and 20 minutes. During the procedure your surgeon will remove small pieces of tissue (biopsy) and will be able to deal with problems immediately such as a large loop excision of the cervix which is the partial removal of the cervix should that be necessary. 

The results of the colopscopy will be discussed in detail and any follow up treatment decided upon.

You will be allowed home on the same day with normal activities returning almost immediately. 

This procedure will normally be covered by the medical insurance policy but patients are advised to check with the provider prior to any treatment.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
