Preparing for Your Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy has been shown to be associated with a reduced risk of developing colon cancer by identification and removal of colon polyps that can grow over time. The efficacy and safety of a colonoscopy depends on a thorough bowel cleansing prior to the procedure. The better the quality of the bowel preparation, the higher chance that the endoscopist can identify and remove polyps, thereby reducing the risk of future colon cancer. For all of the bowel preparation regimens, at least half of the dose of the preparation should be given on the day of the procedure. This has been shown to be associated with a better quality bowel prep and improved patient tolerance.

Please follow the bowel preparation instructions -- provided below in English, Spanish and Arabic -- as indicated by your doctor.
