Cervical cerclage is a medical procedure in which your doctor places a single stitch around your cervix, the opening to your uterus. The stitch sews your cervix closed. Doctors perform cerclage to prevent late (second trimester) miscarriages and preterm (early) delivery.

Cervical Cerclage


How is a cervical cerclage performed?

Your doctor performs cervical cerclage in a hospital operating room. In the operating room, your doctor inserts a tool called a speculum into your vagina to access your cervix. Then the doctor places the stitch around the upper part of the cervix and tightens the stitch. The stitch holds the cervix closed.
