AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2016
Ohio Gastroenterology & Liver Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio (“Ohio GI”) and HyGIeaCare Inc. announced their partnership to prep patients for colonoscopy at the HyGIeaCare® Center that is to be located in Cincinnati Ohio.
The Center will feature the HyGIeaCare Prep System, cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that effectively cleans the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water.
This will be the 6th Center to be established in the US following Austin TX, Norfolk VA, Dallas TX, Gilbert AZ and Jackson MS.
“We as a group are excited about this joint venture,” said Pradeep Bekal MD, a gastroenterologist from Ohio GI. “I know there is a need for this product and our patients will benefit from this exclusive offering which will allow them to achieve excellent preparation of the colon by a method which is much more easily tolerated than traditional bowel preps.”
“Our team is excited at the opportunity to prep for colonoscopy at the HyGIeaCare® Center in partnership with Ohio GI,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare, Inc. “We have already prepped more than 1,500 patients in our Centers with excellent colon cleanliness and excellent patient feedback - we look forward to serving patients successfully at the Cincinnati Center.”
The convenience of hygieacare prep for colonoscopy
At the HyGIeaCare® Center, the prep is performed in a clean and comfortable environment. A trained technician leads the patient to a private room where he or she is seated on an ergonomic basin. The technician 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 Prep replaces traditional prep for colonoscopy and is performed prior to scheduled colonoscopy. It is safe,comfortable and preferred over oral prep.
