The American Cancer Society (opens in new tab) recommends that people at average risk (opens in new tab) of colorectal cancer start regular screenings at age 45. A colonoscopy is a simple diagnostic test that looks for polyps and cancer of the colon. Colonoscopies take about 30 minutes, and you will be comfortably sedated. Most patients report a positive experience and return to normal activities and diet the next day.
Are you ready? Three easy steps:
Ask your primary care physician about the Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program at Park Cities Surgery Center or call (214) 706-6901 to schedule.
Before your scheduled screening colonoscopy, a nurse from Park Cities Surgery Center will call you to ask about your prior medical history and discuss pre-op instructions – this is when you learn how to clean your colon before the colonoscopy.
On the day of your screening colonoscopy, you show up, and we do the rest!
There is no reason to wait or hesitate – it’s your life, be around to live it. Schedule your colorectal cancer screening colonoscopy by calling (214) 706-6901.
