A colonoscopy is the most effective procedure for detecting and preventing colorectal cancer. The good news is that colon cancer is slow growing and very preventable when detected early.
Cancer Care Ontario recommends screening asymptomatic individuals without any family history starting at age 50. By removing any precancerous polyps found during your colonoscopy, we can reduce the risk of you ever developing colon cancer by 90%.
Colon cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths for men and women. While common in adults over 50, colon cancer is slowly growing and preventable when detected early; that is why you should not wait to be screened.
No patient should wait months to be screened, whether for a routine screening or diagnosis of unexplained symptoms. Canadian Place Endoscopy strives to schedule you within two weeks.
Our dedicated and courteous staff works hard to keep our procedures running on time. Procedure reports are faxed within 24 hours of the appointment.
Canadian Place Endoscopy uses the latest endoscopic technology to ensure the best diagnosis in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. Our high-definition endoscopes, used with Narrow Band Imaging™, provide us with sharper images and better contrast, helping us observe lesions in the colon more clearly. The newest technology shortens procedure time, which our patients especially appreciate.
With on-staff physicians dedicated only to providing sedation, we use the sedative Propofol to give you the most comfortable and relaxed experience during your procedure. You’ll fall asleep quickly and wake up refreshed, with no nausea associated with other anesthesia.
We conduct a pre-procedural medicine risk assessment clinic for maximum safety to ensure you will tolerate the sedation. You will be safe and comfortable during your endoscopy procedure!
To provide personal service, Dr. Rai conducts a weekly clinic, reviewing results and answering any questions or concerns you may have. It’s one more way we can offer the high level of care you deserve.
