GES - COLONOSCOPY Specialists Christchurch Colorectal cancer, colonic polyps, diverticular disease and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).

Diagnostic & Therapeutic Colonoscopy

This procedure allows us to directly examine the mucosa (lining) of the rectum, colon and terminal ileum (final part of the small intestine). These are common locations of many important gastrointestinal diseases such as colorectal cancer, colonic polyps, diverticular disease and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).

Colonoscopy requires the bowel to be cleared to provide us with the best possible views of the mucosa and is performed under sedation. During a colonoscopy, we are able to diagnose abnormalities by direct inspection and confirm the findings by biopsy and microscopic examination. Additionally, we are also able to treat some abnormalities such as polyps by removing them, thus reducing the subsequent risk of bowel cancer.
