Polypectomy is a minimally invasive procedure carried out with a hysteroscope to remove polyps in certain parts of the body such as the endometrium, colon or uterus. Hysteroscopy polypectomy for uterine polyps or endometrial polypectomy are procedures that are performed by inserting a hysteroscope through the vagina and cervix to remove or cut with small scissors or similar instruments the polyps. Another procedure is the bipolar electrosurgical polypectomy, which is performed with an endoscope and an electro-scalpel to remove the polyp. A polypectomy can also be performed with a resector or with a polyp forceps. In addition, nasal polypectomy is the removal of polyps that obstruct the nostrils and lead to loss of smell and recurrent sinusitis.
