  • LASER SURGERY OF CERVIX, VULVA & VAGINA DONE IN HOSPITAL

Laser of cervix, vagina or vulva – Currently the only place that has a CO2 Laser in Santa Fe that can be used by all active staff is at Christus St. Vincent Hospital. Therefore any procedures requiring laser need to be done at the hospital. However, these procedures are generally outpatient which means you can go home one hour after the procedure. Laser of these areas is generally done for widespread cervical precancer cells, vaginal or vulvar precancer cells that require treatment or HPV warts. The laser basically evaporates these abnormal areas. General anesthesia is usually used for many of these procedures although not always.
