An adenoma is a precancerous colon polyp as opposed to a benign poly. The American Cancer Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy sets the national standards for GI practices in detection of adenomas. This national goal is to detect and remove adenomas in 25% of men and women combined. Gastrointestinal Associates consistently surpasses that goal.
Measuring performance to advance quality care is gaining national attention, and we are setting the standard. Rest assured that you will be well cared for by the team at Gastrointestinal Associates.
