Colposcopy

Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital 395 Carrie St Strathroy, Ontario

Colposcopy is a visual examination – somewhat like endoscopy or orthoscopy – using a low-power microscope. A colposcopy is the first follow-up diagnostic test that is done to determine the presence of possible abnormalities found in Pap smears. The microscope intensifies the cervix 10-40 times its normal size and the procedure can be used to identify or rule out the existence of any pre-cancerous conditions in the cervical tissue. It is a relatively simple and painless procedure that takes approximately fifteen minutes.

The colposcopy clinic is led by Dr. Robert Di Cecco, a London-based obstetrician/gynecologist who visits Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital once a month.

A referral is required from your family physician to book a colposcopy appointment.
