Endoscopic mucosal resection is a technique to remove the surface layer of tissue from any part of the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, or rectum). We use endoscopic mucosal resection to remove pre-cancerous growths in order to prevent cancer.
When you have Barrett’s esophagus, you are at a higher risk for developing esophageal cancer. Endoscopic mucosal resection of high-risk areas with the Barrett’s esophagus is a minimally invasive procedure that can help you lower this risk. If you have complex pre-cancerous colon polyps, they can be removed with endoscopic mucosal resection. This can help avoid surgery in many cases.
