Large Loop Excision of the Transformation Zone is a medical procedure that is used to remove abnormal cervical tissue. It is typically performed after a colposcopy and biopsy have revealed the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells on the cervix.
During the LLETZ procedure, Dr. Corona uses a thin wire loop with an electrical current running through it to remove a small section of tissue from the cervix. The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia and the tissue sample is sent to a laboratory for further testing to determine if any cancerous or precancerous cells are present.
