Patient InstructionsPreparing for Your Procedure
CentraCare Digestive Center staff and physicians want your experience to be easy, efficient and safe, in regard to your preparation. We understand most patients schedule a colonoscopy with some fear and apprehension. We have tried to find the best prep for all patients, that is best tolerated and affordable. Over-the-counter laxatives mixed with Gatorade/Propel may be used or Crystal light can be mixed with Golytely type flushes to make the solution easier to drink.

CentraCare Gastroenterologists would like you to be relaxed and comfortable during your procedure. We offer the most effective sedation available for your colonoscopy procedure. Intravenous conscious sedation may be used or Propofol which is a fast acting, intravenous hypnotic agent may be used for general anesthesia and procedural sedation.
We strive to provide improved comfort, faster onset of sedation and faster patient recovery, resulting in better polyp detection.
