Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the United States. Until recently, colon cancer found on endoscopic examination has been treated entirely with surgical resection. With the advancement of new endoscopic techniques including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), early CRC that presents with favorable features can be initially removed endoscopically without surgery. In this review we will discuss the expanding role of endoscopic resection in the treatment of colon cancer.
