New Zealand has the highest rate of bowel cancer in the world, affecting 1 in 18 Kiwis every year. It can be prevented and, if treated early, it can be cured.
At the Endoscopy Clinic in Christchurch, our experienced gastrointestinal surgeon, Ross Roberts, believes that colonoscopy is the best screening procedure currently available for the prevention and treatment of pre-cancerous growths and for the early detection of bowel cancer. However, other screening procedures are sometimes used.
If you think you may be at risk, or your GP says you need screening, a referral to The Endoscopy Clinic for a professional Christchurch-based endoscopy procedure can give you peace of mind. Download Endoscopy Referral
