Endoscopy

Our board-certified general surgeons offer endoscopic procedures such as colonoscopy. These procedures are used most often to look for early signs of cancer in the colon and rectum; they also are used to look for causes of unexplained changes in bowel habits and to evaluate symptoms like abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, weight loss, diarrhea and constipation. By removing colon polyps, you can prevent most colon cancers from developing.
