Endoscopic Mucosal Resection

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection is a special technique performed during an endoscopic procedure to remove abnormal tissue from the gastrointestinal tract. It is a less invasive alternative to surgery for appropriate candidates.  It is also more affordable; the estimated costs of surgery are 10x higher than EMR.  It does have a slightly higher risk of bleeding, perforation, and scarring.

How is it performed:

- The prep is similar to a typical EGD or Colonoscopy. Instructions will be given to you by our office staff.

-You will be asleep during the procedure (IV sedation).

-The endoscope is introduced into the GI tract to the appropriate location.

-A small amount of fluid is injected near the lesion to lift it from the underlying tissue.

-The concerning/bad tissue is then removed.

-The area may then be tattooed so it can easily be identified in the future (if indicated).

- The removed tissue is sent to a pathologist to be examined under the microscope.

- Results are typically available within 2 weeks
