Colorectal cancer is the #2 cancer killer in the U.S. The good news? It’s highly preventable and has a high cure rate if caught early in a screening colonoscopy.
We have streamlined this potentially life-saving procedure for patients in the Houston, Texas area with the Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program at Memorial Hermann Surgery Center Southwest. Schedule today by calling us at (713) 343-3100.
Our Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program is a no-hassle, lower-cost, and patient-centered approach to colon cancer screening:
The American Cancer Society recommends that people at average risk of colorectal cancer start regular screenings at age 45. A colonoscopy is a simple, diagnostic test which looks for polyps and cancer of the colon. Colonoscopies take about 30 minutes, during which time you will be comfortably sedated. Most patients report a positive experience and return to normal activities and diet the next day.
On the day of your screening colonoscopy, you show up and we do the rest!
There is no reason to wait or hesitate – it’s your life, be around to live it. Schedule your colorectal cancer screening colonoscopy by calling us at (713) 343-3100.
