Skip the Office Visit

Our gastroenterologists offer direct access for a screening colonoscopy. Qualifying patients can now bypass the initial office appointment which often saves time and money.

Direct Access Screening Colonoscopy

Des Plaines Endoscopy Center offers a personal consultation before you visit for a colonoscopy screening procedure. We also offer Saturday appointments.

Why Get A Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is the most important test to prevent or detect colon cancer at an early stage. Colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in the USA. In response to a rise in colon cancer rates among younger people, the American Cancer Society is now recommending that both men and women undergo screening for the disease beginning at age 45 rather than 50. When found early, colon cancer is 90% treatable.

What is A Colonoscopy?

Colonoscopy procedures allow our physicians to diagnose, and treat colon polyps and colon cancer. Regular colonoscopy screening is the #1 way to prevent colorectal cancer. During a colonoscopy, a doctor can perform biopsies, remove polyps and diagnose colon and rectal conditions, such as colon cancer. If you have a family history of colon cancer or rectal cancer, more screenings as well as early screenings might be recommended.
