Patients in Maryland and Washington, DC to benefit from HygiPrep™ – an alternative prep for colonoscopy and HygiRelief™ – for chronic constipation and bloating
NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Capital Digestive Care and Hygieacare Inc. announce the opening of a new Hygieacare® Center located at Shady Grove Professional Center II, 15001 Shady Grove Road, Rockville, MD. The center will be serving the Maryland and Washington, DC areas to provide patients the FDA – cleared Hygieacare System, with HygiPrep™- a less burdensome preparation for colonoscopy and HygiRelief™ – for patients with chronic constipation, bloating, or impacted bowel.
HygiPrep is performed on the same day as the scheduled colonoscopy and replaces the traditional colonoscopy preparation. Patients who have experienced HygiPrep have reported that it is simple, comfortable, and convenient. Patients may forgo many of the elements that make traditional bowel prep inconvenient. HygiPrep effectively cleans the bowel using a gentle infusion of warm, gravity-flow filtered water. A sterile disposable nozzle is introduced into the rectum, a gentle stream of warm water flows into the bowel, loosening stool and inducing the bowel's evacuation. Completion of the HygiPrep routine takes less than an hour.
Over 14,000 patients have chosen HygiPrep to date with excellent outcomes, safety profile, and outstanding patient satisfaction.
HygiRelief has been proven to be well-tolerated, safe, and effective in over 1,500 patients – many of them returning for relief every four weeks. Patient feedback has been outstanding.
"Our primary focus at Capital Digestive Care is to provide exceptional care, and we are proud to open our new Hygieacare Center even in these extraordinary times. Finding, quantifying, localizing, and removing polyps through screening colonoscopy is the most effective strategy to prevent colorectal cancer. HygiPrep allows us to provide our patients with the choice of improving their experience when performing screening colonoscopy – and help us save lives," says Dr. Michael Weinstein, President & CEO of Capital Digestive Care.
"We are excited that Capital Digestive Care is now offering HygiPrep and HygiRelief in the Rockville MD location. " said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of Hygieacare® Inc, "Adoption by the largest private practice gastroenterology group in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states is a meaningful milestone in our national roll-out."
