Polypectomy

Polypectomy

Polyps are growths in the GI tract, of which a very small number could progress to cancer. These growths are routinely removed during colonoscopy to prevent the risk of transformation into cancer. A polypectomy is a procedure performed through a colonoscope or endoscope to remove polyps. This can be accomplished usually with forceps or a snare, with or without the aid of electric current, depending on the size of the polyp.
