Thanks for responding Lynn. What’s an EMR Colonoscopy as opposed to a regular colonoscopy? Could I just go to my local gastroenterologist to have him remove this polyp in my cecum or do I need someone more specialized to remove this? @lynnc

EMR Colonoscopy is a speciaized colonoscopy to remove larger polyps without surgery. A regular GI is not trained to do this. Mayo & a few other institutions have Physicians trained in this specialty.
