Gastroenterology Specialists of Dekalb

Colon Polypectomy

This procedure is used to remove abnormal growths, called polyps, from the colon. Polyps are usually benign, but some can develop into cancer. The physician uses a colonoscope, a small, lighted camera inside a soft, flexible tube, which is inserted into the rectum. The procedure usually lasts from 30 minutes to an hour.
