Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2014 -- Many people know about regular colonoscopy procedures and their health benefits. Undergoing a colonoscopy procedure at any time is a prudent measure to ensure your digestive health, but for those at a higher risk of colon cancer it is a necessary step. Regular colonoscopies are known to be the most effective way to identify and subsequently prevent the development of bowel cancer. The third-eye colonoscopy makes use of a newer device which gives the doctor a big advantage when undertaking a colon cancer screening, having shown to increase detection rates by up to 23%.
Where to get a colonoscopy is a frequently asked question for many people who are concerned about their digestive health.
