The LEEP procedure, which stands for Loop Electrosurgical Excision, is a method that allows for the evaluation and treatment of diseases of the cervix and vagina.

This quick technique is performed while the patient is not on her period and consists of using an electrically heated wire loop to remove abnormal tissue from infections, warts, tumors, and polyps.
