According to recent study data, published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the incidence of interval colorectal cancers, (cancers occurring between scheduled surveillance colonoscopies), is low in patients undergoing regular surveillance colonoscopy. Dr. John Kisiel, M.D., explains how current […]
