90% OF COLORECTAL CANCER DEATHS CAN BE PREVENTED
Life is full of experiences you don’t want to miss — ensure you’re around for them all. The American Cancer Society recommends screening should begin at age 45 for people of average risk. A colonoscopy allows doctors to catch and remove pre-cancerous polyps early. However, patients should understand a colonoscopy may not be covered by insurance at 100%, though it may be covered at a lesser level.
With more than 130,000 procedures performed since opening in 2009, Central Illinois Endoscopy Center is the largest freestanding, dedicated endoscopy center in downstate Illinois. We are the Peoria area’s first outpatient center dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. We offer enhanced privacy for patients and their families, as well as a comfortable, quiet setting. Plus, because our state-of-the-art center is an outpatient facility, we can keep the cost down for patients and insurers.
