Upper endoscopy with polyp removal (polypectomy)


Through the use of endoscopic procedures it is possible to diagnose the presence of polyps (growth of tissue in the form of a wart) in the esophagus or the stomach that could be precursor for cancer. Their removal is possible with a polypectomy, an endoscopic procedure that causes no pain or discomfort, avoiding the need for open surgery. The patient can return to normal daily activities at the end of the procedure.
