In any large practice, some patients will be identified with polyps that are unable to be safely removed with a colonoscope. For those few polyps that cannot be endoscopically managed, laparoscopic techniques provide a safe and attractive option. They have the potential to decrease patient discomfort and length of stay and still provide adequate oncologic treatment of these potentially malignant lesions.
