Prepare For Your Procedure

To accurately evaluate the health of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, your doctor needs a clear view of the bowel. The best way to get a clear view is for you to complete a few steps to flush the bowel free of waste material prior to your endoscopy procedure.

Commonly called a “prep,” the process involves drinking a solution or taking laxatives and enemas to flush the colon. You must follow the prep instructions thoroughly. If not, your procedure may need to be rescheduled.

From the list below, download the instructions for the prep your doctor selected for you.
