Our team of board-certified gastroenterologists, registered nurses, and endoscopy specialists use the latest techniques to perform thousands of procedures annually on our Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley and Jordan Valley Medical Center campuses. 

Colonoscopy is one of the most commonly performed endoscopic procedures and is a critical screening tool for cancer and other diseases of the colon. Cancer of the colon and rectum is the third most common type of cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer deaths among U.S adults, but is almost completely preventable through the use of regular screening tests. 

If you are age 45 or older and have not had a colorectal cancer screening yet, then it's time to make your colon health a priority. Recent research has shown a significant increase in colon cancer rates among adults younger than age 55. In response to this increase the American Cancer Society (ACS) issued new guidelines for colorectal cancer screening in 2018. Schedule an appointment for your colorectal cancer screening today.

Screenings Save Lives by Detecting Cancers Early
The American Cancer Society estimated that nearly 1.7 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Furthermore, cancer is the second-most common cause of death in the U.S., exceeded only by heart disease. You can, however, increase your odds of survival by getting screened.
