Colonoscopy & Colorectal Cancer Screening
Colon cancer is the 4th most common type of cancer and the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. Regular screening colonoscopies, beginning at age 45, are key to prevention and early intervention. Colon cancer typically develops from abnormal growths in the colon called polyps. If a complex polyp removal (polypectomy) is required, patients are often referred to another facility. Metrodora Institute’s specialists have deep expertise in removing routine colorectal polyps as well as performing complex polypectomies. Our approach to providing complete management of colorectal polyps streamlines the treatment experience for patients.
PROCEDURES OFFERED INCLUDE:
- Diagnostic and Screening Colonoscopy
- Surveillance Colonoscopy
- For high-risk individuals, or those with a history of polyps or previously treated colon cancer
Medtronic’s GI Genius™, an AI-powered polyp detection system with high-definition imaging, increases polyp detection accuracy to improve patient outcomes. Metrodora Institute is the first medical center in the Salt Lake Valley to leverage this advanced AI technology for diagnostic and screening colonoscopies.
