The term submucosal injection polypectomy (SIP) more accurately describes the technique used for removal of flat colonic polyps and is preferred, in the colon, to endoscopic mucosal resection (a procedure that usually uses a special suction-activated device). Using SIP, most polyps can be removed safely from any part of the colon. The methodology is described in detail and is within the capability of most colonoscopists.
