Cincinanati, OH (PRWEB) January 26, 2017
March is colorectal cancer awareness month and, if you’re over 50 or if you’re younger than 50 but have a family history, it is a very good time to undergo a screening colonoscopy. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in the United States and is also one of the most preventable. Most colorectal cancers develop from noncancerous polyps and removing these polyps can markedly reduce your risk of getting the disease.
Ohio Gastroenterology & Liver Institute (http://www.ohiogi.com) cares about the community and strongly believes in the importance of colorectal screening. That is why OGI are donating 100 referrals to receive the HyGIeaCare® Prep which will allow patients to achieve excellent preparation of the colon by a method which is much more easily tolerated than traditional oral bowel preps.
The HyGIeaCare® Center is located at 4746 Montgomery Rd. Suite 200 - Cincinnati, OH
(call 513-569-1343 for scheduling) and features the HyGIeaCare® System which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and which effectively cleans the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water.
“At Ohio GI, we pride ourselves on personalized, professional, prompt, specialized care for each and every patient,” said Pradeep Bekal MD, a gastroenterologist from Ohio GI. “Screening for colorectal cancer saves lives and having an excellent preparation is key to effective colonoscopy. I urge the community to call and schedule their colonoscopy and benefit from our exclusive offering of HyGIeaCare® Prep.”
The convenience of HyGIeaCare prep for colonoscopy
At the HyGIeaCare® Center, the prep is performed in a clean and comfortable environment. Our 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 technician determines the colon has been sufficiently cleansed.
The HyGIeaCare Prep replaces traditional oral preps for colonoscopy and is performed immediately prior to the scheduled colonoscopy. It is safe, comfortable and preferred over oral preps.
