Book Now

colonoscopy is a safe and effective way to test for cancer in the colon or rectum (colorectal cancer). A colonoscopy is recommended for all adults over 45 and every ten years afterward, regardless of prior history. Your physician might recommend earlier or more frequent screenings if you have pre-existing risk factors. Talk to your doctor to learn more about colorectal cancer.

Outpatient and open access colonoscopy

During a colonoscopy procedure, an ARC general surgeon or gastroenterologist examines the inside of the colon (large intestine) with a long flexible tube holding a tiny camera (colonoscope). A colon cancer screening is typically a 20-30 minute outpatient procedure performed at a hospital or surgery center.

For healthy patients that need routine colonoscopies and have no current symptoms or major health complications, ARC offers the open access colonoscopy, also called the fast-track colonoscopy.

Colon Polyps

Polyps are a small clump of cells that forms on the lining of the colon or rectum. These bumps are mostly harmless but can develop into cancer.
