What Is the Procedure for Nasal Polyps?
Nasal polyp surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed to remove the polyps and correct any underlying conditions that contribute to their development. The surgery is typically endoscopic, which means that your surgeon will insert a thin, lighted instrument into the sinuses to gain visibility. They will then use small surgical tools to remove the polyps and any other obstructions. You will be moved to the recovery room immediately after your procedure, where you will be monitored closely for a few hours. In most cases, nasal polyp surgery is successful in relieving symptoms and preventing the recurrence of polyps.
