A COLONOSCOPY COULD SAVE YOUR LIFEVideo in Spanish
In this video Dr. Ramos explains the colonoscopy, an outpatient examination that does not require hospitalization and can save your life. Through this test, Dr. Ramos can detect polyps to be removed before they become cancerous. Or, detect if there is colon and rectal cancer. If it is at an early stage, he can eliminate it, with a 90% success. As this procedure falls under preventive medicine, in most of the cases this test is covered by the insurance. To make an appointment, please call 210-614-1600.
Colon cancer causes 50,000 deaths and affects 150,000 new patients each year, according to the University Health System. A survivor of this disease tells us about his experience. (Published Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - Video produced by TelemundoSanAntonio.com).
