Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD)

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s newest treatment for removing early stage gastric cancers is Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection, or ESD. Using a unique three-step technique, highly trained gastrointestinal surgeons are able to eliminate cancerous tumors or lesions without a surgical incision. ESD has become an important, safe alternative to surgery for removing early cancer in the digestive tract.

 

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)

An Endoscopic Mucosal Resection, or EMR, is a minimally invasive procedure to remove cancerous or precancerous tissue from the digestive tract. Using a thin tube called an endoscope, Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s surgeons can inspect abnormal tissue in the digestive tract and use instruments to remove it if necessary.

SPY is a revolutionary fluorescent imaging system designed to show surgeons blood flow and perfusion in tissue instantly. This allows surgeons to make more effective decisions during open procedures, such as breast and other reconstruction.

 

 

LINX

Measuring only the size of a quarter, LINX is revolutionary tool to fight gastroesophogeal reflux disease (GERD). Constructed of titanium and specialized magnets, LINX is designed to last a lifetime--granting a lifetime of freedom for patients suffering from GERD.
