Can Vitamin D Reduce Your Risk for Colon Cancer?
A new study published in Gastroenterology suggests increased levels of vitamin D could help prevent colon cancer in adults under 50.
Our gastroenterologists and staff at Endoscopy Center of Southeast Texas are dedicated to providing quality, affordable care to the community in our quest to lower colon cancer rates and treat an array of digestive diseases, including Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
We believe in compassionate medicine, where patients feel reassured and unrushed. We hold ourselves to the highest of standards, as our center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Our board-certified GI doctors specialize in performing a myriad of GI procedures, including colonoscopies, flexible sigmoidoscopies and upper endoscopies.
The physicians at Endoscopy Center of Southeast Texas not only meet but exceed U.S. benchmarks for quality in colonoscopy. Our adenoma detection rate (ADR), the rate at which our GI doctors identify adenomatous colon polyps, surpasses the national benchmark of 25 percent. See Our Scores.
Additionally, our patients value the compassionate care they receive from our GI doctors and say they are likely to recommend our center for GI procedures.
