Hospitalization, polypectomy, and D&C under general anesthesia, are the usual way to treat a cervical polyp. This article describes a simple, ambulatory way of performing polypectomy under colposcopic vision, with no need for hospitalization and general anesthesia. The paper summarizes our experience with this method in 96 patients. Our conclusion is that this simple procedure spares the patient general anesthesia, D&C, and unnecessary hospitalization with attendant expense.
