LEEP Procedure

If you have an abnormal Pap test result, Dr. Marden may suggest that you have a LEEP, or loop electrosurgical excision procedure, as part of the evaluation or for treatment.

The LEEP procedure takes about 20-30 minutes and is performed in our office. It is much like a normal pelvic exam. A colposcope will be used to guide Dr. Marden to the abnormal area. LEEP is then used to remove the area containing abnormal cells from your cervix so that the tissue sample may be sent for evaluation.
