Cervical conization while pregnant - do doctors do that, or is it dangerous?

In brief: Rarely

One would need to have advanced cervical dysplasia with the worry of possible invasive cervical cancer to warrant a conization during pregnancy.
Complications would include excessive bleeding, infection, and loss of enough cervical tissue to risk preterm labor. In 30 years I have done two of these and none in the past 15 years.
