Surgical removal: During endoscopy most of the polyps could be removed with out surgery through the colonoscope , some times if it is very big, no pedicle , has malignancy , or cancer cells are close to bowel wall , need to resect and reattach that segment for cure , by open surgery or minimally invasive laporoscopic surgery , speak to your doctor.

Your doctor will exp: I am sure your doctor would be happy to explain. Surgical removal means an operation to remove the polyp. There are two types of operation: open surgery or laparoscopic surgery(this one is a mini operation with smaller cuts as compared to open surgery which is a bigger cut). But talk it over with your surgeon.
