Colorectal Cancer Screening

Colorectal cancer (cancer of the large intestine) is the second most common cause of death from cancer in the United States, after lung cancer. However, colorectal cancer is one of the few kinds of cancer that doctors can prevent.

A colorectal cancer screening test can find growths, called polyps, that can lead to cancer. One of these tests, colonoscopy, can painlessly remove them. Anyone who is at least fifty years old should have a regular colorectal cancer screening. This should be done earlier if you have a family history of colorectal cancer.

Our team of doctors and nurses is dedicated to making your screening test safe and comfortable. We have been performing colonoscopies since 1970, and do almost 5,000 colonoscopy procedures every year.
