Hyperplastic polyps are usually small, located in the end-portion of the colon (the rectum and sigmoid colon), have no potential to become malignant, and are of no clinical significance. Because they can not always be distinguished by their appearance from other types of polyps, they are often removed or biopsied for tissue analysis.
To all our valued patients: In order to keep our community, patients and staff safe and healthy, as of yesterday March 19th, we have limited access to our offices. We are seeing only emergent cases in the Hillsborough office and Surgical Center from 8a-12p and will continue seeing patients by telemedicine. Our Somerville and Warren offices are closed until further notice. We encourage all our patients to register for our portal. This will be our main source of communication. Our phone lines are still available.
We wish everyone the best at this trying time.
The Physicians and Staff at Digestive Healthcare Center
