Abstract: Given a real polynomial $p(t)$ in one variable such that $p(0)=0$, we consider the maximal operator in $\mathbb{R}^{2}$,

\begin{displaymath}M_{p}f(x_{1},x_{2})=\sup _{h>0\,,\,i,j\in \mathbb{Z}}\frac{1... ...t f\big (x_{1}-2^{i}p(t),x_{2}-2^{j}p(t)\big )\big \vert\,dt . \end{displaymath}

We prove that $M_{p}$ is bounded on $L^{q}(\mathbb{R}^{2})$ for $q>1$ with bounds that only depend on the degree of $p$.
