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.
