A flexible sigmoidoscopy is an examination of the lower part of the colon (sigmoid)
that screens for polyps and colon cancer, reasons for rectal bleeding,
chronic diarrhea, and colitis.
Preparing for a flexible sigmoid takes about a day to clean the colon. 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. For more information,
please contact our office.
