A colonoscopy is a tool used to enable Dr. Rubin, your gastroenterologist, to visualize your large intestine and colon. Using a flexible tube with a small camera on the tip inserted into the rectum, the doctor is able to get an accurate picture of your colon.
A colonoscopy is used both preventively and diagnostically to find any structures within the intestines and colon that may signal colon cancer, colon polyps, gastrointestinal bleeding, and other gastrointestinal disorders.
If Dr. Rubin feels you need a colonoscopy, he will give you instructions on how to prepare for this procedure. It is important that your gastrointestinal tract is cleaned out, in order to visualize that area well.
