Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program™
The Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program™ at Mid Rivers Surgery Center is a patient-centered, hassle free approach to colon screening. In this program, select patients can skip the doctor's office visit that typically precedes the colonoscopy and goes directly to Mid Rivers Surgery Center for the procedure. Through the Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program™, we have removed the most common barriers patients have when it comes to have a preventive screening colonoscopy.
Colon cancer screening is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. The evidence is clear—screening for colon cancer saves lives. Colorectal cancer is highly preventable and has a high cure rate if caught early.
Screening Colonoscopies save lives and are highly recommended after the age of 50. If a family history of colon cancer is present, it is recommended after the age of 40.
