Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)


At Sequoia Hospital, the new OverStitch technology is used in conjunction with interventional endoscopy techniques. Sequoia is the only hospital in the Bay Area to offer this minimally invasive technology, which helps many patients avoid the large incisions and long recovery times associated with traditional surgery.  

OverStitch can be used for many conditions traditionally treated by open surgery, including:

  • Bariatric surgery revision
  • Tumor removal in the GI tract
  • Cancer legion removal
