Get a Colonoscopy Today in East Meadow & Glen Cove, NY
A colonoscopy allows your gastroenterologist to examine the lining of your large intestine (colon) for abnormalities by inserting a thin flexible tube, as thick as your finger, into your anus and slowly advancing the tube into your rectum and colon. This instrument is called a colonscope, and it has its own lens and light source that allows your gastroenterologist to view images on a video monitor.
