Southwest Colorado's Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention Specialists Colon cancer is... Preventable | Treatable | Beatable
Colorectal cancer screening saves lives. If everyone aged 50 years old or older were screened regularly, up to 60% of deaths from this cancer could be avoided.
"Patients who want the best results should pick an outstanding colonoscopist, cleanse their bowels scrupulously and probably take the final laxative dose shortly before the procedure. Colonoscopies have helped reduce the death rate from colorectal cancer. The main problem with colonoscopies is that too few people bother to get them." -From the New York Times, December 19, 2008
We specialize in preparing you for and providing high-quality colonoscopy services that are convenient, safe, private and comfortable. Most patients spend less than two hours in our facility and leave with a full report of their procedure results, ready to resume most activities as soon as they depart. Our doctors are colonoscopy experts, performing more than 2,300 of these procedures yearly at our in-town freestanding endoscopy center. We are committed to meeting our profession's goals for endoscopic safety and effectiveness.
