Colon Cancer Screening

Colon Cancer Screening


Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in America. Colon cancer screening can effectively reduce the risk of dying from colon cancer. Norton Gastroenterology Consultants of Louisville strive to make colon cancer screening as accessible and convenient as possible.

Review the text by Dr. Doug Rex, former President of the American College of Gastroenterology for a comprehensive review of colon cancer screening options. Colon cancer screening and colon polyp surveillance guidelines from the American College of Gastroenterology are provided in this section.

Colonoscopy is the most effective and accurate colon cancer screening option. Having your screening colonoscopy done by an adequately trained physician is important to ensure your procedure is done thoroughly and safely. All of the physicians in Norton Gastroenterology Consultants of Louisville are Board Certified in Gastroenterology and are highly qualified to provide screening colonoscopy.

For your convenience, Norton Gastroenterology Consultants of Louisville offers Colonoscopy on Demand services. This non-office visit procedures allows you to download and complete the forms in this section and return them to our office via email or standard mail. Our doctors will review your medical history. Subsequently, our office will contact you to schedule your screening colonoscopy without an office visit. Pre procedure office visits are available if desired.
