Q. How are colonic polyps diagnosed?
A. The treatment for colonic polyps requires removal of the polyps. A doctor can remove them during a colonoscopy. However, surgery may be required if the colonic polyps are large. This is commonly done through bylaparoscopic surgery. In the procedure, a minimally invasive instrument called a laparoscope is used. It is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The surgeon inserts it through an incision in the abdomen and removes the polyps using a special surgical tool.
