Physician recommends screening colonoscopy

Aug 2, 2021, 10:00 AM
Dr. Webb explains the need for colorectal cancer screenings.

The career of gastroenterologist Duane Webb, MD has spanned more than 30 years. Dr. Webb shares his perspective on the importance of screening for colon cancer:

Dr. Webb, Gastroenterologist

“Although it is the third leading cancer killer in the United States, colorectal cancer has been called the most preventable of cancers. That is because colonoscopy can reduce colorectal cancer by 80 to 90 percent. Unlike other tests being advertised on TV and promoted elsewhere, only a screening colonoscopy can prevent colorectal cancer before it starts by removing polyps, where colorectal cancer originates. For that reason, screening colonoscopy is widely recognized as the gold standard of colorectal cancer screening methods. I’ve had four of them myself, and although the prep was certainly no fun, polyps were removed each time. It was worth losing a few hours of sleep the night before. Our motto in the GI Endoscopy Department is ‘stamping out colon cancer one polyp at a time.’ New guidelines are to start average risk screening at age 45, so don’t delay, sign up for your colonoscopy today.”
