With colorectal cancer (colon cancer and rectal cancer) being the second leading cancer killer behind lung cancer in the United States, you can’t afford not to be screened. A big reason for these deaths is from people not being screened for the disease. Many times there are no symptoms. However, if caught in the early stages, this cancer is curable. That’s why having a colonoscopy is important. We offer colonoscopy procedures in our surgical office or a hospital setting.
It’s important that you be an informed patient. There are many colon and rectal diseases and conditions. On this website you will find information on specific colon and rectal issues.
