SLUCare providers offer open access colonoscopy screenings for both existing patients and those referred from outside physicians.

Candidates for open access colonoscopy include people at average risk of colon cancer, such as those older than 50, as well as those at increased risk. Factors for increased risk can include having an immediate relative with colon cancer and being either older than 40 or 10 years younger than the age your relative was when they were first developed colon cancer. (Assess your cancer risk.)

To get more information about colonoscopy screenings through SLUCare, or to schedule an appointment, call (314) 977-4440.
