Trusted Care for Specialized Problems
Recommended for people 50 years of age and older, or with family history of colorectal cancer or polyps, a colonoscopy screening is the best early detection and prevention method for colon cancer. A colonoscopy can also examine other abnormalities causing discomfort within your intestinal tract.
When a GI doctor wants to get a better look, they use an endoscope. Endoscopy procedures are non-invasive and used to examine and diagnose many gastrointestinal disorders. Granite Peaks Endoscopy Center is one of Salt Lake City’s most modern, state-licensed, freestanding endoscopy facilities.
