Colonoscopy screenings are done to detect abnormal occurrences and disease in the large intestine, or colon. The procedure is done using a long and flexible tube known as a colonoscope or endoscope to look into the crevices of the large intestine. The tube is inserted into the colon through your rectum.
Prior to a colonoscopy, we encourage you to visit with your physician to discuss your medical history, allergies, bleeding disorders, medications and any other existing conditions you may have. Having this information beforehand helps him/her complete a very thorough evaluation.
The Colorectal Surgery program is located at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center: 7300 N. 99th Avenue, Glendale, AZ 85307
