HyGIeacare®: Alternative Bowel Preparation
Simple, Same-day Bowel Prep For a Colonoscopy
Let’s face it, prepping for a colonoscopy is not fun for anyone. Being chained to your bathroom for two days can be inconvenient and exhausting. That’s why Austin Gastroenterology is pleased to offer an alternative bowel prep called HyGIeaCare® Prep, where patients can experience a simpler and easier bowel prep using the HyGIeaCare Prep System on the same day as their colonoscopy.
The HyGIeaCare Prep system has been 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. This method allows patients to forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient and uncomfortable. With no need to constantly run to the toilet, you can get a good night’s sleep and achieve excellent outcomes. Please ask your doctor about HyGIeaCare prep.
How Does It Work?
You will be given HyGIeaCare Prep instructions when you call to schedule your prep. A few days prior to your scheduled visit you will receive a call to review the instructions. These may include taking some gentle laxatives and going on a clear liquid diet after breakfast on the day prior to your colonoscopy.
When you arrive for your prep, our trained Prep Tech will lead you to your private room and introduce you to the Prep System. Once you have been seated on the sanitized basin, the Prep tech will introduce a sterile disposable nozzle into the rectum. A gentle stream of warm water will flow into the bowel, loosening stool.
Water continues to flow, allowing you to comfortably and discreetly evacuate your colon. Your Prep Tech will determine when your colon has been fully cleaned. The process typically takes less than an hour. When complete, you will rinse, wipe, towel dry, and dress.
Most importantly, gastroenterologists have found that HyGIeaCare is highly effective in colon cleansing, allowing them to achieve excellent outcomes.
To schedule an appointment, call (512) 368-8357 today. HyGIeaCare Prep costs $149, payable at the time of your visit by a credit or debit card, or by your flexible savings account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) debit card.
