Follow the Colon Prep instructions that your provider recommended for you
A colonoscopy is a procedure that allows a doctor to examine the rectum and colon using a flexible tube called a colonoscope. By directly viewing this area, the doctor can identify, biopsy, or remove any abnormalities like polyps, which helps in preventing colon cancer.
During the procedure, you will be given sedation, so it is essential to arrange for a responsible adult to accompany you home afterward. We do not allow public transportation or ride services for your safety.
It is crucial to follow colon prep instructions to ensure that your colon is as clean as possible before the test, as any residual stool can conceal polyps and small cancers, potentially necessitating a repeat colonoscopy.
