What is Polypectomy ?
Nasal polyps are the most common growths found within the nose. They usually appear in both nostrils as the result of a swollen, irritated nasal lining. Occasionally, other growths or tumors will present as polyps in the nose. If allergy is the underlying cause, it is possible that the polyps will reoccur unless the allergic condition is treated. Polyps can be very troublesome, as they tend to make breathing difficult by blocking the nose and often decrease or totally diminish the sense of smell.
Surgical removal of polyps or polypectomy is the best treatment. Most advanced surgery for nasal polyps is an endoscopic nasal polypectomy. The procedure or surgery is done under general anaesthesia and neds a day stay in hospital after ehich patient can be discharged. The cost of endoscopic nasal polyp surgery varries with the type of procedure performed. As mentioned it can be done using endoscope only or through debrider. The cost of surgery using debrider is a little high as it uses wands and blades which are costly and charges for debrider are extra as well. However the cost difference is not too large and results in both the methods are very good.
