Polypectomy

What Is A Polypectomy?

A polypectomy is a procedure in which polyps, abnormal tissue growths, are removed from the inside of the colon and large intestine. The surgery is noninvasive for the most part, and is typically performed during a colonoscopy.

How Can A Polypectomy Help?

When left untreated, polyps in the large intestine can cause bleeding in the rectal area, abnormalities in bowel movements, and abdominal pain. Conducting a polypectomy can prevent these symptoms.
