What is a polypectomy?
A polypectomy is a procedure that removes enlarged nasal polyps from the lining of the nasal passages and sinuses in order to relieve nasal obstruction and prevent recurring cases of sinusitis.
How does a polypectomy work?
The procedure involves a Sinus Center of Atlanta physician entering the nostrils with specialized medical tools and carefully removing the polyps while a patient is under general or local anesthesia. A nasal polyp surgery may be performed as part of an endoscopic sinus surgery, during which the surgeon uses a small, flexible camera to view into the nasal passages and sinuses and remove tissue with greater precision.
