What is Cryosurgery?

Cervical cryosurgery or cryotherapy is a gynecological treatment that freezes a section of a woman’s cervix also used to treat some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like genital warts.

Cryotherapy uses special instruments called cryo probes that deliver liquid nitrogen. It is most often done to destroy abnormal cervical cells that are precancerous, which your doctor will refer to as cervical dysplasia & is over 85% effective.

Cryosurgery is usually done after a colposcopy confirms the presence of any abnormal cervical cells using Cervical Biopsy procedure. Cryotherapy is also used for the treatment of cervicitis or inflammation of the cervix & abnormal bleeding.

What Happens During Cryosurgery?

Cryosurgery is an office procedure that is done while you are awake. After undressing from the waist down, you will be asked to lie down with your feet in stirrups. A metal speculum is then inserted into the vaginal canal so that it can be held open to allow for a view of your cervix. A cryoprobe is then inserted into the vagina and placed firmly on the surface of your cervix, covering the abnormal tissue.

Liquid nitrogen then begins to flow out of the cryoprobe at approximately -50 degrees Celsius. The cryoprobe becomes cold enough to freeze and destroy the abnormal cervical tissue. For optimal treatment and the best results, the freezing is done for 3 minutes, the doctor will let your cervix thaw and then repeat the treatment for 3 more minutes. Although some slight cramping may occur, cryosurgery is relatively painless and produces very little scarring.
