Complex Colon Polyp Center

The Jefferson Complex Colon Polyp Center team includes physicians, nurses and technicians who are expertly trained in the advanced endoscopic techniques and devices necessary for the successful non-surgical removal of large complex colon polyps or early-stage colon cancers.

Using the latest cutting-edge technology, our specialists perform procedures including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), underwater EMR and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in combination with high definition magnification and narrow band imaging technologies.

We collaborate with our expert pathologists to review biopsies previously done at other hospitals and utilize their expertise to analyze polyps removed at Jefferson for polyp type, presence of pre-cancer (dysplasia) and resection margin. Polyps or cancers that cannot be removed endoscopically are skillfully managed by Jefferson’s outstanding Department of Surgery.

If additional cancer treatment is needed, we collaborate with our experts at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center – Jefferson Health who provide exceptional, personalized oncologic care.

This multidisciplinary team approach ensures excellent patient experiences and outcomes.
