what is a cervical conization?

Remove precancerous: Cervical conization is a surgery to remove a section of the cervix when there are pre-cancerous cells. This can usually be done in the office, and recovery is not too uncomfortable. Extra repeat pap smears should still be done to make sure all pre-cancerous cells are gone and don't return. Can still have kids after, but cervix can be weak or scarred, so will need special attention when pregnant.
