How Much Does A Colonoscopy Cost?

Colonoscopy is an effective method that allows you to quickly obtain comprehensive information about the condition of the large intestine. The use of a colonoscopy (a flexible, controllable probe with a camera) makes it possible to effectively and reliably detect bowel diseases at the earliest stages of development, when they do not yet manifest themselves as obvious symptoms.

What You Need A Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is needed:

  • with prolonged constipation;
  • with intestinal obstruction;
  • with bleeding from the intestines;

If you suspect nonspecific ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or tumors.

In general, doctors recommend that any patient with bowel problems undergo a colonoscopy. After 40 years, due to the increased risk of colorectal cancer, colonoscopy is recommended as an annual preventive examination, since the cost of the procedure makes it affordable for most patients.

Judge for yourself: a 20-minute examination replaces many tests and analyzes, while giving much more accurate results!
