What is a Colonoscopy?
During a colonoscopy your colorectal surgeon will use a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon and check for abnormalities.
If you need a colonoscopy, it’s normal to want to know what happens in a colonoscopy, and what happens afterwards.
Be assured that a colonoscopy is normally a straightforward procedure. There are many reasons why you might require this procedure. Your colorectal surgeon will explain the details to you, and help you to prepare.
Your colonoscopy will typically give your colorectal surgeon some more information about your health. Any findings or recommendations will be discussed with you after your procedure.
If you’d like to arrange a colonoscopy, speak to your GP for a referral or speak to one of our friendly staff.
