Polypectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove polyps, which are abnormal growths or tissue masses that can develop on the lining of various organs, including the uterus (endometrial polyps), colon (colorectal polyps), or nasal passages (nasal polyps). Polyps can cause symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, pain, or obstruction, and may increase the risk of certain health conditions such as cancer. At our clinic in Indore, we offer safe and effective polypectomy procedures to diagnose and treat polyps and improve patients’ health and quality of life.

How Polypectomy Works

Polypectomy is typically performed using minimally invasive techniques, such as hysteroscopy, colonoscopy, or nasal endoscopy, which allow for visualization and removal of polyps without the need for open surgery. The procedure involves:

  1. Visualization: The healthcare provider inserts a thin, flexible instrument with a camera, called an endoscope, into the affected organ or cavity to visualize the polyps and surrounding tissue.

  2. Polyp Removal: Using specialized instruments such as forceps, snares, or loops, the healthcare provider grasps the base of the polyp and carefully removes it from the surrounding tissue, ensuring complete excision while minimizing damage to healthy tissue.

  3. Biopsy (if necessary): In some cases, the healthcare provider may take a small tissue sample (biopsy) from the removed polyp for further evaluation under a microscope to determine if it is benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

Benefits of Polypectomy

Polypectomy offers several benefits for patients with polyps, including:

  • Symptom Relief: Removal of polyps can alleviate symptoms such as bleeding, pain, or obstruction, improving patients’ quality of life and comfort.
  • Prevention of Complications: Removing polyps can prevent complications such as bleeding, infection, or malignant transformation, reducing the risk of serious health conditions such as cancer.
  • Diagnostic Accuracy: Polypectomy allows for accurate diagnosis and characterization of polyps through histological examination of biopsy samples, guiding further treatment decisions if necessary.
  • Minimally Invasive: Polypectomy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and does not require open surgery, resulting in shorter recovery times, fewer complications, and improved patient satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions

While most polyps are benign (noncancerous), some may be precancerous or cancerous, especially in the colon or uterus. It is important to remove and biopsy polyps to determine their histological characteristics and guide further treatment if necessary.

Polypectomy is usually well-tolerated and minimally painful, as it is typically performed under anesthesia or conscious sedation. Most patients experience mild discomfort or cramping during the procedure, which can be managed with pain medications.

Recovery times vary depending on factors such as the location and size of the polyps, the type of procedure performed, and individual patient factors. In general, patients can resume their normal activities within a few days to a week following polypectomy.

While polypectomy is a safe and effective procedure, it carries some risks, such as bleeding, infection, perforation, or recurrence of polyps. These risks are rare and can be minimized by seeking care from a qualified healthcare provider.
