Overview of Polypectomy Treatment India

Polypectomy is a surgical procedure in which the polyps are removed. Polyps are the abnormal growth inside the organs or any cavity of the body. Polyps can be formed in any cavity of the body such as the stomach, ovary, uterus, and colon. Polyps can be non-cancerous or cancerous. In many cases, polyp formation inside the organs does not cause any symptoms. But when the polyps start producing symptoms, the surgeon has to remove these polyps. Regular monitoring of polyps and the removal of polyps is also important for the prevention of stomach cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, and stomach cancer. Polypectomy can be performed as a minimally invasive procedure in which small incisions are made to perform the procedure. Sometimes small incisions are not necessarily required and the procedure can be performed through the natural openings of the body. Many of the polyps are also removed during the diagnostic procedure such as endoscopy and colonoscopy. There are also risks and complications associated with the procedure of polypectomy. So proper management is required. Polypectomy is a type of minor surgery and it requires a very short time to recover completely. In the recovery phase, some medications can be used to prevent any delay in the recovery process.

There is a slight risk of infection at the site where the polyp was removed. This complication can delay the recovery process.


In some cases, there is a small risk of puncturing or perforating the organ or tissue during the removal of the polyp. The risk is greater in specific types of polypectomies such as colonoscopic procedures. It can also be due to poor skill and management.

Allergic Reaction

There is a minimal risk of an allergic reaction to medications or materials used during the procedure. However, not all patients experience these allergic reactions.

Adverse Reaction to Anesthesia

If anesthesia is administered, there can be a risk of having an adverse response to it. However, such reactions are rare.

Residual Polyp Tissue

Sometimes complete removal of the entire polyp is not possible and a small fragment of tissue might remain. This can increase the risk of regrowth of the polyp over time.

Scar Tissue Formation

After polyp removal surgery, scar tissue may develop at the extraction site. This is a natural part of the healing process but can result in symptoms or complications.
