A colonoscopy is an examination of the lower gastrointestinal tract otherwise
known as the colon or large intestine. A colonoscopy is an exploratory procedure that screens for colon polyps and colon cancer and explores
in-depth information regarding rectal bleeding, an iron deficiency anemia and chronic, unexplained abdominal or rectal pain. The procedure
can last up to one hour.
Preparing for a colonoscopy takes about a day to clean the colon. Please download our colonoscopy prep here.
You must avoid solid food for a day before the procedure as well as any NSAIDs, blood thinners and medications containing iron, to name a few.
