What is Polypectomy?

Polypectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to remove uterine polyps. Uterine polyps are abnormal growths that develop in the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium). They are typically non-cancerous but can cause various symptoms and interfere with fertility

Why Choose Polypectomy?

  • Symptom Relief: Uterine polyps can cause symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, heavy menstrual periods, intermenstrual bleeding (bleeding between periods), and infertility. Polypectomy helps alleviate these symptoms by effectively removing the polyps, restoring normal uterine function, and improving overall well-being.
  • Improved Fertility: Uterine polyps can interfere with fertility by affecting embryo implantation or causing recurrent miscarriages. Polypectomy can enhance fertility outcomes by removing the polyps, creating a more favourable environment for embryo implantation, and increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy.
  • Minimally Invasive: Polypectomy is typically performed as a minimally invasive procedure. It involves passing a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted instrument, through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. The polyps are visualised and removed using specialised instruments, such as grasping forceps or a wire loop.
  • Outpatient Procedure: Polypectomy is often performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can typically go home on the same day as the procedure.

The Polypectomy Procedure

  1. Preparation: Before the procedure, the patient may be given medication to help dilate the cervix and reduce discomfort. They may also receive anaesthesia or sedation, depending on the complexity of the procedure and your preferences.
  2. Insertion of Hysteroscope: A hysteroscope, a thin, lighted instrument, is gently inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. The hysteroscope provides a clear view of the uterine cavity, allowing the surgeon to visualise the polyps.
  3. Polyp Removal: Using specialised instruments passed through the hysteroscope, the surgeon carefully removes the uterine polyps. Different techniques, such as grasping forceps or a wire loop, may be employed to excise the polyps.
  4. Evaluation and Follow-up: After removing the polyps, the surgeon may examine the uterine lining to ensure all polyps have been successfully excised. The removed tissue may be sent for further analysis if necessary. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor recovery.
