Summary

The provider examines the inner part of the colon and rectum using a colonoscope, a long, thin flexible tubular instrument with a light source and camera. He then uses a channel in the scope to introduce a balloon catheter and inflates the balloon to dilate one or more sites of stricture, an area of abnormal narrowing.
