Colonoscopic Polypectomy

Colonoscopic Polypectomy in Bangalore

In clinical medicine, colonoscopic polypectomy treatment in Bangalore is the most effective visceral cancer prevention method. In general, the risks associated with polyp removal techniques should be proportional to the possibility that the polyp will become or is already malignant (e.g., low-risk technique for low risk for malignant potential). For most small polyps, cold methods are preferred. Polypectomy procedures must be both successful and safe. Even with adequate technique, complications can emerge. Complications should be evaluated and treated aggressively to provide the best possible outcome.

Need for the procedure

A polyp is caused by genetic abnormalities in colon lining cells that disrupt the normal cell life cycle. Many factors can increase the likelihood or rate at which these changes occur. Diet, lifestyle, age, gender, and genetics or inherited disorders are all factors. Small polyps can change their shape and become malignant over time. Polyps are routinely removed via a colonoscopy, which eliminates the possibility of the polyp becoming malignant.


Before the surgery, the doctors will administer some sort of anaesthetic or sedative to relax you for the duration. A scope, which is a long, flexible tube, will be used. The scope will be sent into the rectum and, subsequently, the colon by the doctor. The scope will introduce air into the colon. It will make more room for the doctor. Images from the scope's camera will be sent to a monitor in the room. As the scope passes through the colon, the doctor will be able to observe the walls of the colon.

As the doctors will look for polyps along the scope, a wire snap will be passed. It will remove the polyp and seal the wound. An electric current can be used to eradicate polyps. Electric current is also used to seal and halt bleeding in wounds. Any excised tissue will be forwarded to a lab for analysis. When the doctor is done, the scope will be gradually withdrawn.

Laparoscopic surgery may be required for big polyps. Tiny tools will be placed through small wounds in the stomach and colon during this surgery. The instruments will be used to locate and remove the polyp.

After Procedure

During the surgery, there may be some cramping or lower abdomen pain. Medicine will help you feel better. Some people will fall asleep throughout the operation. Gas aches and cramping are common side effects. These discomforts should subside as the gas passes. After the procedure, the sedative will take roughly an hour to wear off.

A minor amount of rectum bleeding may occur at home for 3 to 4 days after surgery. Tea, coffee, caffeinated sodas, liquor, and spicy foods must be avoided for a few days because they can irritate the gastrointestinal system. Consult with the best doctors at Manipal Hospitals.
