Colonoscopy Prep Instructions

How do I prepare for a Colonoscopy?

A cleansing preparation is required to achieve the best examination of the colon.  If the colon is not well prepared, Dr. Rogers may not be able to evaluate the entire colon. It is like trying to videotape with mud on the lens. 
Primary focus of Dr. Rogers’ practice is colorectal cancer screening.  Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.  Early detection by colonoscopy screening finds cancer in an early and treatable stage. Just as significantly, colonoscopy allows the removal of precancerous growths before their transformation into cancer. 

You will be provided a handout detailing the specific instructions regarding your preparation. For a general discussion of this topic, here is a link to the AGA website.
