With our advanced technology and highly trained team, we are able to perform and interpret a wide range of imaging tests, including:
A colonoscopy is an internal examination of the colon (large intestine) and rectum, using a thin, flexible tube with a camera called a colonoscope. The doctor uses a video monitor to look for abnormalities such as ulcers, polyps, tumors, or areas of inflammation or bleeding. If any irregularities are found, they can be biopsied or removed.
This outpatient exam is often used to screen for colon cancer or to evaluate symptoms such as abdominal pain, change in bowel habits or unexplained weight loss, among other symptoms. It can be completed in less than an hour and is performed under mild sedation to relieve any discomfort.
Colonoscopy can also be used to treat certain diseases, including removal of polyps, widening narrowed areas or blockages, or addressing bleeding from diverticula or lesions. Specialized procedures, such as laser surgery or cauterizing techniques, may also be performed during a colonoscopy.
The current recommendation for colon cancer screening by the American Cancer Society is a screening colonoscopy starting at the age of 45. Future examinations are planned based on the findings.
Our direct referral screening colonoscopy allows healthy patients, without exclusion criteria, to receive a screening colonoscopy without an initial office visit. The exchange of all needed information is done over the phone, which saves the patient both time and the expense of an office visit.
Direct Referral Screening Colonoscopy Exclusion Criteria
You may be excluded from the direct access program if any of the following apply to you:
