Screening for colorectal cancer
Montreal Institute for Special Surgery has inaugurated in the past years a gastroenterology unit. The digestive endoscopy clinic of the Sanctuary specializes in the screening for colorectal cancer and gastroscopy (stomach cancer). These exams are done by endoscopic method (by camera). Our high technology tools are high in image quality with unequal accuracy, an important element that avoids any mistake during your examination and or procedure.
In addition to meeting with the specialist in gastroenterology, you will receive a preliminary report with all your results, immediately after your examination. This information resumes your exam and specifies the course of your next your next interventions, should this be the case. We offer you a rapid and effective service, contrary to the hospital field that often presents you a two-year waiting period: a sufficient enough delay to allow a benign lesion to become cancerous.
