Screenings After 80


All Videos

If you have had your screening colonoscopies at regular intervals and you’re above the age of 80, usually we do not do screening procedures after that point. If you are a patient that has significant comorbidities or significant medical problems such as heart failure, severe diabetes, or any neurologic disorders, you need to speak to your physician to see whether your risk of doing the procedure outweighs the benefits. But in general, unless you have significant comorbidities, it is a very safe and easy procedure.
