Most adults over 50 need a colon cancer screening, an initial colonoscopy procedure and follow-up screenings about every five or six years thereafter. Though the procedure itself is relatively quick and painless, the preparation may require a day or so, which is difficult for many working adults to fit around their already busy schedules.
That’s why we chose to perform colonoscopy on weekends, as well. Because no one who needs colonoscopy should be prevented from having the procedure due to a doctor’s typical weekday schedule.
As you may already know, colonoscopy is both a diagnostic procedure and corrective treatment. If we find polyps or tumors, we can remove them using the same endoscopic technology. Colonoscopy saves thousands of lives every year. Don’t put off yours another day, even if it happens to be a Saturday or Sunday.
