SC Endoscopy Center - - Columbia, South Carolina

Every 3.5 minutes, an American is diagnosed with colon cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies. Last year, more than 750 South Carolinians died of colorectal cancer. This is all the
more tragic when you realize that colorectal cancer is 95% preventable.

Revolutionary Quality

The SC Medical Endoscopy Center is dedicated to the highest ideals of providing excellent screening and early detection of this preventable cancer through the pioneering concept of Primary Care Endoscopy.

Our well-appointed facility is fully licensed and accredited by the AAAHC, in recognition of
our high quality of care and full compliance with the standards for superior ambulatory health care organizations. Our facility has been documented to far exceed all national standards
of quality care with 3 times the polyp discovery rate as the national average. Since 1991,
we have performed over 25,000 colonoscopies, and have NEVER had a patient die of colon cancer after receiving a clean bill of health from SCMEC.

A study by the New England Journal of Medicine reported that polyp detection rates at other facilities could vary as much as 10-fold from one physician to another even within the same practice. Quality matters—and SCMEC provides the highest quality care in all of S.C.
If you only need to have this test performed once every 10 years, then give yourself peace
of mind by having your colonoscopy performed by experts with the highest quality standards for polyp detection and safety.
