Today, colonoscopy is recommended for all adults 45 and over to screen for colorectal cancer.
Colonoscopy is the Gold Standard.
While there are alternative home testing methods available, a colonoscopy performed by a gastroenterologist is proven more effective in detecting cancer. Unlike home testing, when a cancerous growth or polyp is detected, it can be removed immediately during your colonoscopy.
USDH Colonoscopy is The Platinum StandardSM.
Today, US Digestive Health Endoscopy Centers are staffed by the most experienced team of GI specialists in the Northeast. And now, those same experienced physicians are equipped with GI Genius™, a technology aided by artificial intelligence that is proven to improve the accuracy of cancer detection. In clinical studies, GI Genius™-enhanced colonoscopy has demonstrated a 50% reduction in missed colorectal polyps versus standard colonoscopy alone.1 Consequently, by using AI-assisted technology, USDH Physicians have the enhanced ability to diagnose and treat colorectal cancer with unsurpassed accuracy.
It Couldn’t Hurt. And it Sure Could Help.
In most cases, colonoscopy is a fast, relatively painless and simple procedure performed under light anesthesia in an Endoscopy Center. Patients are generally in and out in under 2 hours.
Do it for yourself. And for Those You Love.
