Achieving Stronger Outcomes

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women in the United States. If detected early, colon cancer can be cured.

Texas Colon & Rectal Specialists are actively engaged in helping patients beat the odds and achieve stronger outcomes. Our colorectal specialists perform more than 12,000 colonoscopies every year.

According to the American Cancer Society, the risk of colorectal cancer increases between ages 40 to 50, and as a result, it is recommended that a colonoscopy cancer screening be performed no later than 45 (and possibly earlier depending on health and family history).
