Endoscopies and colonoscopies are safe and comfortable tests that can detect early health issues and even save lives. Patients should always first contact their primary care providers to determine a need for scheduling a screening procedure. At that time more information and testing preparations will be explained.
Advantages of endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures over alternative diagnostic procedures include:
- The ability to more directly see lesions or growths for detection and evaluation
- The ability to get biopsies in a relatively noninvasive way
- The ability to perform intervention therapy during the procedure
