Colon Cancer Screening & Prevention Program

We have locations throughout the New York City area.

Cancers of the colon and rectum are sometimes called colorectal cancer, or just colon cancer. At NYU Langone, we’re working to help prevent colon cancer and to detect it at its earliest stages, when it’s highly curable. 

Most colon cancers develop from precancerous growths called polyps. Neither precancerous polyps nor early colon cancers typically cause symptoms. At NYU Langone’s Colon Cancer Screening and Prevention Program, our gastroenterologists are highly trained and skilled in colonoscopy screening, during which they can remove polyps before they turn into cancer, or detect colon cancer in its earliest stages.

Our state-of-the-art gastroenterology offices and procedure centers are conveniently located throughout New York City and Long Island. At many of these locations, we offer innovative new colonoscopy technologies, such as cuff-assisted colonoscopy, which helps enhance visualization behind the folds on the wall of the colon, and capsule endoscopy, which is available in the rare case that a patient’s colonoscopy cannot be completed.

In addition, some of our locations offer a colonic irrigation procedure to clean out the colon before a colonoscopy. This is a 45-minute, same-day colonoscopy preparation option for patients who are unable to undergo, or who cannot tolerate, the traditional oral preparation regimen.
