Gynaecologist Perth | Endometrial polyp treatment in Perth, WA

Endometrial Polyp Treatment

The treatment for endometrial polyp is hysteroscopic polypectomy. An instrument called a hysteroscope enables vision of the inside of your uterus. This enables identification of the size and location of the polyp.

Hysteroscopic Polypectomy

The hysteroscope enables identification of the polyp. This can either be removed with polypectomy forceps but also removed under vision using a cutting device (Myosure) or an electrode.

A sample of the endometrium is often taken as well during this procedure – this is called a ‘curette’.

Part of the hysteroscope then "shaves" the spot where the Polyp was attached, until it aligns with the surface of the uterine activity. We call this the resection or the ablation of the endometrium.

Hysteroscopic Polypectomy is a single-day hospital procedure and it generally takes 1 or 2 days to recover.

I strongly believe that good and open communication are key, when we discuss gynaecological treatment and women's health. That's why I focus on establishing that clear communication with every patient, so you feel safe and well informed about your options and choices.
