Quality Rating - Exceeding the Standard
At Cary Gastroenterology, we track multiple endoscopic quality measures for all screening colonoscopies. The Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR) is the most important quality standard for screening colonoscopies. It is a calculation of the percentage of first-time screenings in patients at least 50 years of age during which a precancerous polyp (adenoma) is found. In other words, if a physician performs 10 screening colonoscopies, and finds an adenoma in three patients, the ADR is 30%. The current national standard ADR is 30% for male patients and 20% for female patients. Physicians with higher ADRs prevent more cancers.
The physicians at Cary Gastroenterology consistently have ADRs of more than double the national standard.
Here are some examples of exceptional, in-office treatment at Cary GI:
- In-office hemorrhoid treatment by non-surgical hemorrhoid banding treatment.
- In-office anorectal manometry for the comprehensive evaluation of fecal incontinence, chronic constipation, and defecatory disorders.
- Non-surgical treatment of anal fissures, including botulinum toxin injection.
- Breath testing for H. pylori infection, lactose intolerance, fructose intolerance, and a small bowel bacterial overgrowth.
- DNA based stool testing for the rapid and complete evaluation of infectious diarrhea.
- Treatment of hepatitis B and hepatitis C with the newest antiviral medications.
At Cary, your digestive health matters to us and we look forward to being your physicians!
