- A colonoscopy is minor, out-patient procedure whereby a professional medical doctor uses a long, flexible, tubular instrument to transmit images of the interior lining of the colon.
- A colonoscopy is a common procedure that allows the doctor to check for abnormalities within the colon.
- If abnormalities are found, the doctor may remove small amounts of tissue which is then submitted for testing with a pathologist.
- As a common, nonintrusive procedure, the colonoscopy allows the doctor to diagnose and to properly treat patients without the need for a major operation.
- The duration of a colonoscopy is typically 30-60 minutes.
- An upper endoscopy is a procedure used to visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube.
- A specialist in diseases of the digestive system (gastroenterologist) uses an endoscopy to diagnose and, sometimes, treat conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine.
