Get Screened Now: Come to Our Comprehensive Colonoscopy Clinic

Colonoscopy screening is one of the most effective ways to detect and prevent colorectal cancer. That’s why our clinic offers this life-saving procedure for patients who are at higher risk, or who simply want to stay on top of their health. Here, we’ll explain the process from start to finish, so that you can make an informed decision about getting your colonoscopy screening clinic  done.

What Is a Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is a diagnostic procedure in which a flexible tube with an attached light and camera is passed through the rectum into the large intestine (colon). This allows us to look for any abnormal growths or other signs of disease in the lining of your large intestine. The whole procedure takes about 30 minutes, and usually requires some form of sedation. The good news is that it is generally quite painless – you will feel some pressure, but no sharp pain. It may be slightly uncomfortable during insertion and removal of the scope, but this passes quickly.

Preparing For Your Colonoscopy

Before your procedure, you will need to do some preparation work. This involves fasting before your appointment as well as taking medication (or drinking a solution) to clean out your bowels in order to get a clear view inside your colon during the test. You will also need someone to drive you home from the clinic after your procedure has been completed due to sedation used during the test.                                                                                                                                                                                 

What Happens During Your Colonoscopy?                                                                                                                                

When you arrive at our clinic for your colonoscopy appointment, you will be asked to provide consent forms as well as any necessary medical records related to prior diagnosis and treatments related to colorectal health issues. From there, our team will administer medication or solution (depending on what type of prep was prescribed) that cleans out your bowels before inserting a scope into your rectum and colon. During this time, we’ll take pictures or videos if needed in order to determine whether any abnormal growths are present or if further action needs taken such as biopsies or removing polyps. Afterward, you may experience minor cramping or bloating while all medications wear off post-procedure; however these symptoms should subside within 24 hours after treatment has been completed.
