At Mercy Gilbert, we use the latest procedures to diagnose and treat a variety of digestive health problems such as colon cancer, ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
We are proud to be the first in Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico to utilize the Third Eye® Retroscope® during a colonoscopy. Third Eye® Retroscope® is a new device that allows doctors to see more of the colon through a reverse view as well as the traditional forward-looking view while performing a colonoscopy.
Recent research has shown, however, that some polyps and cancers can be missed during a colonoscopy, especially if they are hidden from the forward view of the colonoscope. This is because the colon has many folds in its inner lining and the areas behind those folds are difficult to see with the colonoscope. The same problem occurs with fixtures, or sharp turns, in the colon. The Third Eye® Retroscope® is able to provide a way to visualize these hidden areas.
