Every time our patient ask how should they prepare for the Capsule Endoscopy procedure? So here is what you need to do before the procedure.

The day prior to your appointment you will be given a bowel prep that will eliminate waste from your entire colon to allow the capsule to take clear pictures of the small bowel wall. You will also be asked not to eat solid foods and follow a clear liquid diet the day prior and day of your procedure until you are instructed otherwise.

Tell your doctor of the presence of a pacemaker, previous abdominal surgery, or previous history of obstructions in the bowel, inflammatory bowel disease, or adhesions.
