Colonoscopy

WHAT  IS A COLONOSCOPY AND WHO SHOULD HAVE ONE?

A colonoscopy is a test of the large intestine’s inner lining. Doctors use this test to detect ulcers, polyps, tumors or areas of inflammation and bleeding. The test can also detect cancer or precancerous growth. The American Cancer Society recommends most individuals over the age of 50 have a colonoscopy every 10 years. People at higher risk may need the screening more often.

 

WHY SHOULD I HAVE MINE AT JRMC?

There are #dozens of reasons to choose JRMC.

For four years running, iVantage has named Jamestown Regional Medical Center one of its Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the country. The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States, named JRMC a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. JRMC regularly meets and exceeds even the highest industry standards.

And while JRMC is proud of its awards and recognition, the most important reason to choose JRMC belongs to the individual. Many choose JRMC because they know our nurses or go to church with a technologist. Others choose JRMC because they can receive high quality care, without the burden of travel. No matter the reason, our goal is always to provide VERY good care.
