Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy utilizes a thin endoscope to examine the rectum, sigmoid colon and descending colon. It is typically done without sedation. Since the shorter, thinner endoscope does not allow for examination of the entire length of the colon, it is no longer routinely used as a primary means of screening for colon cancer. The primary goal of flexible sigmoidoscopy is to evaluate for bleeding, to survey lesions, or to evaluate certain symptoms involving the distal colon or rectum.
