My regular GI doc in Palo Alto discovered a "very large" flat polyp across a fold in my colon in a difficult position near the appendix. She referred me to Dr. Binmoeller, who performed an EMR procedure to remove the polyp. The previous method of dealing with this sort of polyp, which if left untreated would likely eventually develop into cancer, was to remove part of the colon. Needless to say, I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Binmoeller and his expert team at CPMC for the top-notch care they delivered. A follow-up procedure showed the operation to be a complete success, and I am a very grateful patient.
