GI endoscopy is one of the most widely performed medical procedures in the United States. The majority of these procedures are screenings related to colon cancer or the removal of abnormalities from the GI tract. It is important to note that there is significant overlap between the procedures considered and a patient can, and often does, undergo multiple procedures at one time.
