A pipelle biopsy is a procedure that takes a small sample (biopsy) of cells from the lining (endometrium) of your womb (uterus). The sample is then sent to a laboratory to be examined for any abnormal cells. This procedure can often be helpful to investigate abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Dr Lizzie Loudon, Dr Caroline Christie and Dr Mike Tolmay can do pipelle biopsies.
This procedure requires a 30minute appointment. These appointments cannot be booked online, you will need to call reception for an appointment. There may be a charge for these appointments however this may vary depending on the funding available.
Your doctor will be able to advise if you are eligible for funding.
