Colonoscopy

Lower GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy is a special exam of your lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract.  If you are having symptoms of a lower GI problem or have had an abnormal x-ray, this procedure may be done to get a better look.  It can also be used to screen for colon cancer and to help treat certain lower GI problems. 

During endoscopy, a long, narrow, flexible tube called an endoscope is used.  This instrument contains a strong light and a video camera.  Your GI tract can then be viewed on a video screen.

If you are concerned that you have a GI problem, have your physician set up a consult with Dr. Schram.  Dr. Schram will be able to perform the colonoscopy procedure at either the Hastings Surgical Center or Mary Lanning Healthcare for you.
