Our Colonoscopy Team

A colonoscopy is a routine procedure that looks for polyps (or small overgrowths of tissue) and other conditions that can affect the digestive tract. Colon polyps and early colon cancer usually do not have symptoms. Because of this fact, it’s important to get screenings from a highly trained, board certified Gastroenterologist who is trained to look for these lesions before they cause health consequences.

Regular screenings after the age of 50 are the best way to detect these polyps. Our Gastrointestinal specialists are board certified and highly trained to perform this screening. Polyps themselves are very common, and many people will have polyps in their lifetime. While there are various ways to screen for polyps, a colonoscopy has the highest detection rate. A colonoscopy is the only way polyps can be removed to prevent them from becoming cancerous.
