Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy can be an incredibly uncomfortable procedure, due to the preparation involved. But Judy Law-Torok M.D. makes the procedure as comfortable as it can be, every step of the way. Contact Judy Law-Torok M.D. in Torrance, CA if you have any questions about the colonoscopy procedure.

Colonoscopy

Some say the hardest part of a colonoscopy is the preparation, in which you have to consume a diet of pasta, rice, vegetables and fruit without the skin, lean meats, eggs, and other low-fiber foods. The day before the procedure, you must drink only liquids and take a prescription of over-the-counter laxatives specified by your doctor. By the time you get back to the office, the colonoscopy is the easiest part.

No matter how uncomfortable that sounds, it is important to consider if you have a family history of colon cancer, polyps, or other diseases involving your intestines. When the time comes that you need a colonoscopy, you’ll want a physician you can trust to make the process as painless for you as possible.
