Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy procedures are done by Gastroenterologists and General Surgeons on staff at Wooster Community Hospital. Gastroenterology is a medical subspecialty concentrating on the digestive organs involving the stomach, bowels, liver, colon, and gallbladder. The Gastroenterologist treats conditions such as abdominal pain, ulcers, diarrhea, cancer and jaundice. Gastroenterologists perform complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures using lighted scopes to see internal organs.
