A colonoscopy is the best way to detect and prevent cancer before it reaches critical stages. Our Wellington and Jupiter gastroenterologists perform colonoscopies that can identify over 95 percent of precancerous polyps. The polyps get removed during the procedure as part of the treatment. After the colonoscopy, the polyp tissue samples are sent to pathology to specify if cancerous cells are present. Colonoscopies are conclusive treatments that serve as a preventative measure to benefit your GI health by eliminating any problem polyps before they progress into a critical stage. This is why a colonoscopy is considered the gold standard for the detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.
The standard and most common types of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These diseases affect around 1.6 million Americans, with many receiving a diagnosis before 35 years of age. IBD is a chronic condition. This means it can be maintained and treated but not cured. Every year around 70,000 new cases are identified in both children and adults.
