It’s not the most popular procedure in medicine, nor is it the most comfortable. But colonoscopy remains our very best method of identifying and removing anal polyps, and diagnosing more serious issues long before they become chronic or fatal.
One recent study has underlined the positive aspects of colonoscopy and successfully debunked any suggestion that the procedure could be dangerous, or cause complications of its own. The rate of such complications has been dropping for some time around the globe, helped along by better training and experience:
“Despite increasing numbers and technical difficulty of colonoscopy over the past years, the post-colonoscopy complication rate remained relatively stable or even declined, likely reflecting positive changes and improvements in colonoscopy practice,” the researchers concluded.
Colonoscopy screening could save your life – and now we have excellent evidence that few undesirable effects last longer than the procedure itself. For a colonoscopy screening in Los Angeles, call today.
