What is hysteroscopic polypectomy?
Hysteroscopic polypectomy is a procedure in which the uterine polyps are surgically removed while keeping the uterine intact. Uterine polyps are benign growths attached to uterine lining. Overgrown endometerium cells lead to uterine polyps. They are also called as endometrial polyps. The polyps formed can range from few millimeters to few centimeters. They generally occur within the uterus, but sometimes may slip into the vagina through the cervix—the lowermost part of the uterus.
