Cancer screening, colonoscopy and endoscopy

Early detection is key

Colorectal cancer generally begins as small noncancerous growths called polyps. But with regular screenings, our board-certified gastroenterologists can find and remove these polyps before they become cancerous. Unfortunately, the disease may be advanced before symptoms such as rectal bleeding, pressure or a change in bowel habits occur. If diagnosed early, before the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, it is much easier to treat.

Our endoscopy center offers easy scheduling and comfort

The Chandler Endoscopy Center and Premier Endoscopy Center are our state-of-the-art facilities where we perform our outpatient procedures. Patients report that they enjoy the privacy and the high comfort level of these centers. The procedures we perform in the centers include:

Regular screenings can save your life

The American Cancer Society recommends the first colorectal screenings by age 50. You may need to begin screenings earlier if you have a family history or you suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Colonoscopy is the only way we can examine the inside of the entire colon. We can schedule these life-saving exams quickly and perform them in the comfort of our endoscopy centers to rule out cancer or help you get lifesaving treatments immediately.
