50 is the new 30 - or so they say. but the reality is that 50 year olds today are generally more active and healthier than those just a couple of generations ago. But don't let that fact that you are feeling great fool you; if you are turning 50 this year - treat yourself to a colonoscopy.
A colonoscopy may not be on the top of your gift list, but it can be the gift of life. Colon cancer is 90% curable when found early; not just treatable - curable! And, let's be honest, the only reason people put off the test is because they have heard horror stories of the prep and the whole thought of it seems a bit embarrassing. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in the middle. The prep has come a long way in recent years and isn't as bad as you are probably expecting. The procedure is handled in a completely comfortable and professional manner and the sedation provided handles the rest.
But, the real issue is this - colonoscopies save lives! So let's not get bogged down in the details and call today for an appointment 601-355-1234. Don't forget - if your primary care physician recommends a colonoscopy, you have the right to request the procedure be done in our state of the art endoscopy center rather than at a hospital.
