Colonoscopy (examination of the entire large intestine, the rectum, and the anus using a flexible viewing tube) is an important part of preventative health examinations. It is also indicated for resolving the causes of non-specific abdominal pains, irregular bowel movements, blood in the stool, endoscopic polyps monitoring, and the diagnosis or progress monitoring of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis).
Patient safety and a painless examination are a top priority for us. That is why we offer our colonoscopy patients a “quick anaesthesia” in line with the S3 guideline “Sedation in Endoscopy”, so they will not consciously experience the procedure. Please note that you will in this case not be able to drive a vehicle for the next 24 hours.
