The Hygieacare® Prep, cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is exclusively offered by Gastro Health. HygiPrep® replaces conventional oral prep and effectively cleans the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water. This means patients may forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient and uncomfortable, and can experience simple, easy bowel prep for their scheduled colonoscopy.
“We are proud to now offer the choice of HygiPrep® to our patients, as a good bowel prep is the first step in a screening colonoscopy that can detect potential cancer risks and prevent colon cancer,” said James S. Leavitt, MD, FACG, founding gastroenterologist with Gastro Health and medical director of the Miami Hygieacare® Center. “We have partnered with Hygieacare® to bring better care to our patients, with an easier prep before colonoscopy, and a safe and effective solution for constipation.”
“We are excited to be open for business in Miami and in partnership with Gastro Health to prep patients for colonoscopy and provide relief to thousands that are suffering from chronic constipation,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare, Inc. “This Center is the first Center to be opened in Florida. Tens of thousands of patients have already benefited from this preferred prep with excellent outcomes at our Hygieacare® Centers in Austin, TX, Norfolk, VA, Cincinnati, OH, Jackson, MS, Rockville, MD, and BeeCave, TX.”
The Convenience of HygiPrep®
HygiPrep® is performed in a clean and comfortable environment prior to the patient’s scheduled procedure. A trained technician provides instruction and is available for support throughout the appointment. A gentle gravity-flow stream of warm water flows into the bowel through a sterile, disposable nozzle, comfortably and discreetly evacuating the colon. Water continually flows until the colon is cleansed. HygiPrep® takes about one hour.
The HygiPrep® replaces traditional oral prep for colonoscopy and is performed on the day as the colonoscopy, prior to the scheduled procedure. It is safe, simple, comfortable, and preferred prep.
