Screening / Diagnostic Colonoscopy / Upper Endoscopy
Utilized most importantly for colon cancer diagnosis and prevention, these procedures are currently recommended by the US preventive task force, American Cancer Society and the American College of Gastroenterology as one of the more important methods to find and remove pre-cancerous polyps. A multitude of symptoms including but not limited to diarrhea, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, reflux disease, swallowing difficulty and anemia are also evaluated by standard endoscopy.
We offer advanced screening and therapeutic endoscopy using state of the art Olympus 180 endoscopes with high definition resolution. In addition, we have advanced Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) which is recommended in part by the ASGE for evaluation of potential dysplastic / cancerous tissue (Barrett’s esophagus, IBD surveillance) and for evaluation of flat polyps.
