What is a colonoscopy?

A total colonoscopy is a procedure in which the inside of the entire large intestine (rectum and colon) is examined.

I recommend this test to diagnose symptoms such as bleeding, pain in the abdomen, diarrhea or constipation.

I also recommend it if you do not have any discomfort but your intention is to prevent colon cancer or if there have been polyps, cancer or inflammatory bowel disease in your close family.

What happen before a colonoscopy?

For your exam to be successful you need to have your intestine clean of fecal matter so you can examine it properly. This is the reason why laxative preparation is necessary.

How a colonoscopy is performed?

In the exam you will be asleep and you will not feel anything. We will be taking care of you

To perform the colonoscopy, I will use specialized equipment called a colonoscope (a long, flexible instrument, 13 mm in diameter) to see the entire interior of the colon in detail.

The colonoscopy begins in the anus, the equipment advances to the rectum and then passes through all the regions of the colon until reaching the cecum and the last part of the small intestine called the ileum.

When I remove the colonoscope, I will carefully examine all the walls of your intestine. If I see polyps I can remove them and if due to your discomfort you need biopsies I can also take them. The procedure lasts on average 30 minutes.

What happens after a colonoscopy?

Once the procedure is finished you will be taken to a recovery room where you will remain until the effects of the sedation wear off. Then you will be discharged along with your companion. You will take your exam report and you will be able to go eat as you usually do.
