New Colonoscopy Technology Makes Its Way to Columbia


Tuesday - August 06, 2013 at 07:52 am


Most people know that colon cancer is a slow growing cancer and with the wide availability of colonoscopies these days, that's why doctors say deaths from colon cancer shouldn't be happening.  Our next guests however, say that statistics show that 10% of the people who do die from colon cancer actually had a colonoscopy within the previous five years.  That's why they are promoting a high-quality colonoscopy that they say could virtually eliminate these tragedies.

Mike Switzer interviews Dr. Stephen Lloyd, Medical Director of the South Carolina Medical Endoscopy Center in Columbia and Dr. Piet de Groen, an international expert in colonoscopy from the Mayo Clinic and both were recently at USC's Moore School of Business where they demonstrated Dr. de Groen’s new proprietary software system that automatically captures and analyzes data during a live colonoscopy.
