“Traditional colonoscopy prep is a major hassle for all our patients. With Same Day Prep™ our patients can now prepare comfortably for colonoscopy in a safe, private and hygienic environment at the HyGIeaCare® Center.
AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) April 12, 2016
Same Day Prep™ for colonoscopy is now available for AZCDH patients at the HyGIeaCare® Center located at Harbor Shores Medical Center II, 4001 E. Baseline Road, in Gilbert, AZ.
The Center features the HyGIeaCare Prep System, cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to effectively clean the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water. The use of this proprietary method means patients may forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient and uncomfortable, and can experience simple, easy bowel prep on the same day as their scheduled colonoscopy.
“Traditional colonoscopy prep is a major hassle for all our patients. With Same Day Prep™ our patients can now prepare comfortably for colonoscopy in a safe, private and hygienic environment at the HyGIeaCare® Center, without a sleepless night and without having to repeatedly run to the bathroom,” said Virender K. Sharma, MD FASGE FACG AGAF who practices gastroenterology at AZCDH.
Good bowel cleansing is the key to a successful colonoscopy, early cancer prevention.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. It typically begins as abnormal growths called polyps, which can be detected and removed during a colonoscopy, dramatically lowering the risk of death from the disease by more than half. Unfortunately, up to one-quarter of all colonoscopies are reported to have inadequate bowel preparation, which can hinder these efforts.
“Our team is excited at the opportunity to provide patients with Same Day Prep™ for colonoscopy at the HyGIeaCare® Center in Gilbert,” said Gabi Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare, Inc. “patients can now join over one thousand patients in Austin, Norfolk and Dallas that already benefited from the advantages of our Same Day Prep™.”
The convenience of simple, same-day prep.
At the HyGIeaCare® Center, the prep is performed in a clean and comfortable environment. A trained tech leads the patient to a private room where he or she is seated on an ergonomic basin. The tech walks the patient through the procedure, which routinely takes less than one hour. A small, sterile, disposable nozzle is easily inserted about an inch into the rectum and a gentle stream of warm water flows into the bowel, loosening stool and causing the intestine to contract allowing for the comfortable, odorless and discreet evacuation of the colon. Water continues to gently flow until the tech determines the colon has been sufficiently cleansed.
The HyGIeaCare Same Day Prep™ replaces traditional prep for colonoscopy and is performed on the same day as the colonoscopy, prior to the scheduled procedure. It is safe, simple, comfortable and preferred over oral prep.
