Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)

An endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a technique performed during a gastroscopy or colonoscopy in which large and usually flat polyps are removed. EMR procedure allows removal of tumours without surgery. It is performed using an endoscope — a flexible, tube-like instrument that allows our gastroenterologists to see a high degree of detail. The EMR technique can be used to remove growths in the upper GI tract or colon that might otherwise require surgery.
