It is used to evaluate the large bowel.  A flexible tube in a big size of four feet in length and the thickness of the pipe is approx. similar to the thickness to our finger is used to conduct Colonoscopy. The gastroenterologist enters this tube with an attached camera to find out the problem.  A torch is also inserted along with the tube to ensure clearer visibility during the procedure. Dr. Ram Chandra Soni, the best Colonoscopy doctor in Faridabad is extensively trained to perform colonoscopies in use. Till now he has performed more than one lakh colonoscopies.
