CC2018: Management of Benign Colon Polyps

Session Description

With improvements in endoscopic technology, benign polyps can more safely be removed endoscopically or with combined endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques. These minimally invasive techniques allow patients to recover faster, with fewer risks when compared with bowel resection, and with equivalent overall cancer-related outcomes. Surgeons should continue to be at the forefront of this technologic advancement to ensure a culture of safety and quality patient outcomes. This panel will discuss advancements in management of benign colon polyps including endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and combined endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques (CELS).
