Procedure For Treating Uterine Polyps

If you have smaller uterine polyps, they might sometimes disappear without treatment. Our specialist will monitor you to make sure they don’t get bigger. If your situation requires treatment to remove the polyps, we will carry out a thorough health check-up. It would help if you let our team of experts know about any medical conditions you have. Our trusted team then begins the procedure by performing a pelvic ultrasound if you have abnormal bleeding or any other symptoms of uterine polyps.

In some cases, an ultrasound is not enough to diagnose a uterine polyp. In this case, our specialist might use a tiny camera or scope to check inside the uterus. This process is referred to as hysteroscopy, and it helps diagnose polyps. The treatments we have available for removing uterine polyp include polypectomy and hysterectomy. 

Our polypectomy is a procedure to take out a polyp. This treatment option requires anesthesia. During our hysterectomy procedure, we remove the whole uterus. Our trusted team carries out a vaginal hysterectomy through the vagina. In our abdominal hysterectomy, the uterus is taken out through a cut in the stomach region. Both of these surgeries are done at our practice. You will be asleep under general anesthesia for both treatment options.
