It’s the perfect thing that you’ll want to watch after finishing your lunch: Hamilton Health Sciences Gastroenterologist, Dr. Barry Lumb will be performing the first Facebook live broadcast of a colonoscopy in the country.
The doctor says that if you tune in, you will see a high resolution video feed of the scope making its way through the colon as he checks for polyps and lesions.
His hope is that it will make people less nervous about the procedure. Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer related death in Ontario.
Hamilton Health Sciences will live stream the procedure this afternoon at 1 p.m. here:
