Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

Sigmoidoscopy is a state-of-the-art method for examining the inside of the rectum and sigmoid colon. During sigmoidoscopy, the instrument will be gently passed through your rectum and proceed through to your sigmoid colon, estimated to be the last two feet of your colon. Your rectum and sigmoid colon will be carefully examined.
