Colonoscopy in Encino
When the cause of your colorectal condition is uncertain, Encino residents will usually undergo a colonoscopy to identify it. Colonoscopy is also used to perform routine screening for colon cancer, a test which is recommended every five to 10 years after the age of 50.
Colonoscopies are performed using a colonoscope, which is a flexible tube fitted with a light and camera to help your colorectal specialist inspect the rectum and large intestine. During a colonoscopy, your Encino colorectal specialist may use specialized tools placed through the colonoscope to remove colon polyps, identify abnormalities and gather biopsies for further testing, making it a valuable diagnostic procedure.
Residents of Encino who visit our offices for a colonoscopy will be guided through the preparations needed for the procedure to ensure that it is as effective and comfortable as possible.
