Philhealth Deduction for Colonoscopy

COLONOSCOPY is mainly a diagnostic procedure. Your doctor uses a colonoscope to examine your large intestine (rectum and colon) and the lower part of your small intestine.

A colonoscope is a thin flexible tube that has a small video camera at the tip.

Colonoscopy is used to find tumors, polyps, ulcers, inflammation and bleeding in your large intestine.
It can also be used to collect tissue samples for biopsy.
