A bipolar electrosurgical clip is provided having two opposed prong members which are connected by a bridge member. The surface of the prong members are preferably coated with a conductive material while the bridge member is made of a highly resistive material which serves to electrically isolate the prong members from each other. One conductive prong member is adapted to serve as an active electrode through which electrosurgical energy is delivered to tissue while deploying the clip. The other conductive prong member serves as a return electrode, communicating through a conductor wire with an electrosurgical generator.
