USC Surgery / Treatments / Endoscopic Mucosal Resection

Endoscopic mucosal resection refers to a minimally invasive procedure that allows the limited removal of a small nodule, as well as burning away of Barrett’s esophagus, that harbors high-grade dysplasia or early intramucosal cancer. Once successfully treated, these patients often require an antireflux operation to protect the esophagus from ongoing injury from reflux.
