The Oakville Endoscopy Centre makes a colonoscopy, (the gold standard for detecting colon cancer), available to individuals within 6 months. Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in North America, and Ontario has one of the highest colon cancer rates in the world. In fact one in 17 Ontarians will get colon cancer if he or she is not monitored.
Timely monitoring for colon cancer in Ontario is made more difficult because of the long lead times required to obtain a colonoscopy at hospitals. The average wait time for an assessment and colonoscopy at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, for example, is more than a year.
Since early detection is a prime determinant of whether colon cancer will be cured, timely access to colon cancer screening is VERY IMPORTANT. The Oakville Endoscopy Centre is a very vital part of the network of colon cancer detection services available in the region.
Its services and equipment are at least as advanced as any available in the region. They are provided and overseen by highly trained physicians with full access to hospital facilities when patients require more complicated procedures.
