Nasal Polyp Removal



Nasal polyps are benign overgrowth of the inner layer of the nasal tissue. This causes blockage of secretions, leading to sinus symptoms.

Treating nasal polyps can be difficult. Initially, your doctor may prescribe nasal spray to help reduce inflammation and reduce polyp growth. However, these medications don't always resolve the polyps. If this is the case nasal polyp removal may be the right choice for you.

What is Nasal Polyp Removal?

Nasal polyp removal is an endoscopic procedure that can be performed in the office or the operating room, where the surgeon uses a special nasal camera to guide small instruments in removing the polyps. This removes the blockages in the nasal passageway and improvement of the sinus symptoms.

Patient Recovery

After nasal polyp surgery, you may suffer slight pain and bleeding in your nose. These symptoms should go away in a week, although you may notice blood while blowing your nose for up to a month. 

You will most likely continue to undergo nasal saline irrigations and may be given steroids throughout this period. Return to your doctor for a check-up to ensure that your recuperation is progressing as planned.
