What Sets Us Apart

NYU Langone doctors are experts in treating conditions caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), which is easily transmitted by sexual contact. Of the more than 150 strains of HPV, 40 affect the genital area. Some of these strains can lead to genital warts; others can lead to cancer of the cervix—the passageway that connects the uterus to the vagina in women—as well as to cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, mouth, and throat.

HPV infection is common in sexually active adults and teens, both male and female, and our doctors treat many people diagnosed with HPV each year. Our doctors can provide a vaccine against HPV and perform procedures to diagnose and treat genital warts and address abnormal cervical cells.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our gynecologists and urologists treat genital warts in women and men using medications or surgical procedures. Our doctors may perform minimally invasive surgical procedures in women to treat abnormalities of the cervical cells caused by an HPV infection.
