Patients at Saint Joseph Mount Sterling now have reasons not to be nervous before a colonoscopy.
New state-of-the-art equipment has made the intimidating procedure a little less nerve-wracking. The new technology provides closer images that are larger, so problem areas are easier to identify and lesions are more easily detected. This increased visibility allows for decreased exam time, and fewer unnecessary biopsies. Even the tiniest detail is projected with super sharp clarity and precision, decreasing the chances of perforating the colon during the exam.
Another reason to relax before this life-saving procedure is because Saint Joseph Mount Sterling offers sedation, if desired.
