Laparoscopic Procedures

LEEP/Cone Biopsy

LEEP/Cone Biopsies are used to remove suspicious tissues from the cervix. They are often performed after other procedures have uncovered abnormal test results. It is called a “cone biopsy” because a cone-shaped sample is removed from the cervix.


Hysterectomies are performed to remove a woman’s uterus. The uterus may need to be removed for a variety of reasons, including cancer, endometriosis, uterine prolapse, uterine fibroids, or for other health issues. Most women will need to stay in the hospital for a few days to recover, and it can take up to six weeks to fully recover. If the ovaries are also removed during the hysterectomy, women may enter menopause as a result. Dr. Mandelman will discuss your treatment options to determine the best treatment for you.
