Cervical cells grow and shed constantly. Sometimes, these cells can change and become abnormal. The presence of abnormal cells, or dysplasia, can be an early warning that a woman is at risk for developing cervical cancer. If other tests (such as Pap smears, colposcopy, or biopsy) show that you have any abnormal cells on your cervix, your provider may recommend the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). The LEEP is used to remove the abnormal cells from your cervix and can be performed safely and conveniently right in our office.

After a local anesthetic is administered, a thin wire loop is inserted into the vagina.. Electrical current is applied to the loop, and the loop acts as a scalpel to remove the abnormal tissue. A pathologist then evaluates the tissue.

ATTENTION: Please be advised that beginning Monday, October 28th, the Indianapolis campus’ elevator modernizations are scheduled to begin for the two passenger cabs! We will do one elevator at a time and each one will take approximately 10-12 weeks to complete. During this process, we ask that you please use the freight elevator and the open elevator cab while the modernizations are being done. We apologize for any inconvenience during this process but it will be well worth it once the cabs are completed!
