1 Ontario Colonoscopy Clinic
Etobicoke Surgical Partners established the Ontario Colonoscopy Clinics (OCC) in 1997 to provide a timely and quality colon cancer screening service to the community. So far, OCC has performed over 30,000 colonoscopy screenings for patients. This service is now provided in the Etobicoke Surgical Partners facilities adjacent to the William Osler Hospital. In addition to timely screening, the Ontario Colonoscopy Clinics provides rapid access to diagnostic endoscopy. We can easily accommodate direct referrals for low acuity patients who need investigation of rectal bleeding, workup of anemia, FOBT OR FIT positive patients, or patients with a change in bowel habits.
2 Fecal Immunohistochemical Testing (FIT) Endoscopy Program
Etobicoke General Hospital will be offering urgent colonoscopy screening for the newest colon cancer screening offered by Cancer Care Ontario: Fecal Immunohistochemical Testing (FIT), as well as for positive Fecal Occult Blood Testing (FOBT). Patients will have urgent access for rapid diagnosis and treatment of their colorectal cancers, and advanced endoscopy to remove precancerous polyps.

Oncoplastic techniques combined with plastic surgery services provide patients with the best results from an oncologic surgery perspective with the optimal cosmetic result after both surgery and radiation therapy.
