Colonoscopy in Woodland Hills California
Colorectal conditions in Woodland Hills are often diagnosed using a colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is a screening examination that is performed with a colonoscope, a long, flexible tube equipped with a light and camera used to evaluate the anus, rectum and large intestine. During a colonoscopy procedure, your colorectal surgeon can remove abnormalities like colon polyps and obtain biopsies, all with specialized tools attached to the colonoscope.
During the colonoscopy exam, an image of the inside of the colon is projected onto a large screen in the operating room, giving your surgeon an enhanced view of your intestinal tract. Colonoscopies provide earlier detection of abnormalities like colon polyps, which can become cancerous if left untreated.
