Bowel Cancer Screening Melbourne
Have You Been Screened?
Many illnesses we attend to at Moonee Valley Specialist Centre are serious and debilitating for our patients. However, bowel cancer remains the most significant and life-threatening disease we treat.
Bowel cancer is, in fact, curable in 9 out of 10 people when detected early enough. The American Gastroenterological Association recommends screening every five years for people aged 50 and over (colonoscopy – 2 years for faecal testing only).
Did you know a simple,screening colonoscopy is easy to arrange and only a day procedure for you? Let’s catch bowel cancer before it’s too late. Ask us how.
So, don’t delay. Early detection of bowel cancer could save your life!
Iron Infusions Melbourne
Iron infusions are so important! Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in Australia.
An intravenous iron infusion is a simple procedure performed in our consulting rooms by our registered nurse, Nicole Connelly.
It involves a needle being placed into a vein in your arm or hand for the iron solution (iron and saline) to drip (infuse) into your blood stream. Your appointment will take about 30 minutes in total.
Liver Scans Melbourne
A liver scan at Moonee Valley Specialist Centre is a painless procedure similar to an ultrasound that allows our liver specialist, Dr Nathan Connelly to determine whether disease such as hepatitis has scarred the patient’s liver. It does this by measuring any stiffness (or scarring) of the organ, which is known as fibrosis.
Moonee Valley Specialist Centre is the only private practice in Victoria to have a FibroScan® 502 Touch device
