Colonoscopy and Colon Cancer Screenings at Penn Medicine

Gregory G. Ginsberg, MD, President of the ASGE (American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy), is the director of endoscopic services at Penn Medicine. Dr. Ginsberg discusses how colon cancer is a silent disease until it's generally advanced and so individuals over the age of 50 are recommended to undergo a colorectal cancer screening.

Colonoscopy has been repeatedly demonstrated to be
the most safe and effective and efficient means to diagnose colon cancer. And most importantly to diagnose pre-cancerous lesions.

The gastrointestinal endoscopists at Penn Medicine are all highly trained, highly skilled practitioners. Penn Medicine is thoroughly committed to the diagnosis and prevention of colorectal cancer.
