Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.


A speculum is inserted into your vagina, as for a pap smear, and the light from a small microscope (colposcope) is focused on to the cervix. Special staining solutions are painted onto the cervix which show up abnormal cells. A biopsy (small tissue sample) may be taken to examine in the laboratory.
