Dr. Shakoor is an expert in performing diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopies. An endoscopy is a non-invasive exam of the digestive tract using a small fiberoptic camera or “endoscope”. Endoscopies are typically performed under IV sedation in an outpatient setting, and last no more than 30 minutes.
The most commonly performed endoscopy is a Colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is the preferred method of colorectal cancer screening and prevention in the United States. Currently, colonoscopy is recommended every 5-10 years in average-risk individuals starting at the age 50 (age 45 in African Americans). Most insurance plans will cover a screening colonoscopy as part of “health maintenance” benefits. Please call your insurance provider for more details.
