Premalignant Diseases of Lower Genital Tract
The Gynecology Colposcopy Clinic at the University of Florida serves as a referral center for the comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of premalignant diseases of the lower genital tract.
Prevention of vulvar, vaginal and cervical cancer is our focus. Cervical cancer is the sixth leading cause of cancer in women in the United States and the most common cancer in women in many economically underdeveloped countries. Only breast cancer causes more cancer-related deaths in women worldwide. When developing treatment plans, we incorporate the patient’s personal values and life goals. New concepts in the management of premalignant diseases of the lower genital tract and early detection methods have been enhanced by knowledge of the disease process. We are able to decrease the impact of disease on individuals and the community by utilizing the most recent protocols for epithelial abnormalities and establishing early vaccination and other preventative programs.
Services provided include: counseling and management of abnormal Pap smears, colposcopic examination of the cervix, cryotherapy, loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP), cervical cone biopsy, LASER ablation, and excision of precancerous lesions.
