Jersey City Medical Center, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, now offers Easy Access Colonoscopy at its Ambulatory Surgical Center, making it simpler for residents in Hudson County to get screened for colon cancer.
With Easy Access Colonoscopy, eligible patients may be able to skip the required pre-procedure physician visit and go directly to scheduling the colonoscopy.
First step is to call the Ambulatory Surgical Center at 201-878-2300 for a brief health screening discussion to determine eligibility for an Easy Access Colonoscopy.
Screening is the number one way one can reduce the risk of colon cancer. Despite its high incidence, colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer and, if found early, the most treatable. The Center for Disease Control recommends that adults age 50 to 75 should get screened for colon cancer.
The Ambulatory Surgery Center at Jersey City Medical Center has two designated endoscopy operating rooms which boast state-of-the-art gastroenterology medical equipment, unparalleled in Hudson County. Its medical staff consists of eleven board certified Gastroenterology surgeons.
