Removing a Large Flat Colon Polyp by EMR without Surgery is probably my most popular webpage. It's not a topic I ever thought I would put on the web. It sort of chose me. I went for a colonoscopy like other people over 50. They found a big flat benign colon polyp, which was too complicated for them to remove in the colonoscopy. As per standard practice for this situation they recommended a right hemicolectomy. That means they wanted to remove the entire right side of my colon. This idea didn't sit well with me. So I went on a major quest to find a better way. My web page describes my personal journey and how I got the polyp removed by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), a more advanced non-surgical leading edge medical procedure. Now the polyp is gone and I still have my colon. Many other people find themselves in this same predicament each year.
