Biopsy

A Biopsy is a medical test that removes cells or tissues from the body for examination to determine the presence or extent of disease. Dr. Gauta may do a Cone Biopsy sometimes called Conization using a blade to remove a triangle of cervical tissue which may contain abnormal cervical cells or cervical dysplasia, the abnormal growth of cells on the surface of the cervix. Although this is not cancer, it is considered a precancerous condition.

Another way biopsies are performed is through a procedure called LEEP - Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure which uses an electrically charged wire loop to remove abnormal cervical tissue in his office.

All procedures are performed in the office and are safe, effective and typically painless although mild cramping may be felt during the procedure. It takes approximately five to 10 minutes to complete. Following the procedure, patients will be given instructions about simple restrictions and follow-up.

At times, he may perform a biopsy as part of an outpatient hospital procedure such as a D&C or laparoscopy. In both cases, the tissue samples are sent to a certified laboratory for analysis and a comprehensive report.
