Surgical removal of nasal polyps
Polyps are small growths of the nasal mucosa that decrease the patency of the upper respiratory tract. The operation removes the polyps in a fast and safe manner.
The procedure is performed by experienced surgeons using specialised equipment. A so-called shaver is used for this purpose. The shaver is a device, which performs operations without the need for cutting the skin. The shaver head is introduced into the nose, where the unwanted growths are removed. The whole procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia, so it is completely painless.

What are the benefits of surgical removal of nasal polyps?
After the surgery, the nasal patency will significantly improve. As a result, the patient regains the ability to breathe freely, which directly translates into improved quality of life. The growth of polyps is suppressed (such polyps, if left growing, could have impaired the process of breathing further in the future) and the risk of developing upper respiratory tract infection diseases is reduced.
