A colonoscopy is a procedure that enables gastroenterologist to look inside your large intestine (colon) and rectum. At Beleaf Multispeciality Hospital our doctor performs colonoscopy procedure to detect and prevent colon and rectal cancer. Colonoscopy has become very common, but there are important things everyone should know about preparation, anesthesia options, and recovery.

Why should I get a colonoscopy?

Colonoscopy is typically recommended as part of routine colon cancer screening, which includes a physical exam, stool test (to rule out cancer), and blood test (to rule out other diseases). If you have been diagnosed with colon cancer or if you are at high risk for developing it, your doctor may recommend that you get a colonoscopy within the next few years.

It’s also an important first step in preventing colorectal cancer. Colonoscopies are used to detect, remove, or biopsy affected parts of the large intestine and rectum. A colonoscopy can be performed with or without sedation, depending on your comfort level.

Colonoscopy

What is the colonoscopy procedure?

During a colonoscopy, the gastroenterologist inserts a long, thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope into the patient’s rectum. The instrument is equipped with a tiny video camera and light at its tip. The camera sends a video image to a monitor, allowing the doctor to examine the patient’s large intestine. The doctor removes any polyps discovered in the intestine and may remove small pieces of other types of abnormal tissue for further examination. Before the procedure begins, an IV is placed in the patient’s vein so that medications for sedation can be given quickly. The patient is connected to equipment that monitors heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. The patient also receives oxygen through the nose.
