Colonoscopy Procedure Description

The colonoscopy treatment uses a transparent tube on the tip that incorporates a light and miniature TV display. This system is sometimes referred to as the "hunter" and is located in the rectum and advanced through the colon. It's paired with a tv monitor that monitors the doctor while you're doing the test. Unique miniaturized instruments can be placed through the scope to help the doctor collect biopsies (tissue samples) and view the lining of the colon to diagnose the disease.

You will schedule your appointment with the Granite Peaks GI Scheduling Team to determine a convenient time for you to have colonoscopy with one of our gastroenterologists. Our staff will ask demographic questions, including your medical insurance data, as well as some specific questions to ensure that we will schedule you correctly. Bowel preparation for most people is the part of the process they dread most, but rest assured that bowel preparations have improved over the years and have become easier to use.
