Episode #15: Colonoscopy Preparation Doesn’t Need to be Difficult (a discussion of innovation in bowel cleansing)

During Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Awareness Month in March, we’re hosting a series of conversations with physicians about the importance of being screened.

This week, Dr. Naresh Gunaratnam talks with Dr. Pradeep Bekal of the Ohio Gastroenterology & Liver Institute and Dr. William Stern of Capital Digestive Care in the Washington DC metro area, about an innovative colonoscopy preparation that both practices offer to their patients.

There are five HyGIeaCare centers in the U.S. that are using the HygiPrep system, which provides a gentle bowel prep for colon cleansing with an infusion of warm, gravity-flow, filtered water to cleanse the colon.

Join Dr. Gunaratnam, Dr. Bekal and Dr. Stern for a discussion of the importance of CRC screening and one tool that their practices are using to help remove barriers to getting screened.
