J. H. Dorsey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The laser, used in combination with the colposcope, provides a highly accurate method of removing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and the cervical transformation zone. Cure rates exceed 95% in the properly triaged and treated patient. Few serious complications have been reported. Combination operations such as vaporization and excision for the treatment of large areas of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia provide the laser surgeon with the most versatile attack on these diseases.
