Regional Gi is pleased to announce that we have implemented the use of CO2 during colonoscopy procedures performed at both of our facilities. Regional Gi is the only Lancaster GI practice that uses CO2 in their procedure centers (located at 2104 Harrisburg Pike and 4140 Oregon Pike).
The use of CO2, instead of room air, during colonoscopy procedures is proven to reduce bloating, abdominal pain, and flatus post procedure (as evidenced in many national and international studies).
CO2 may also reduce the patients time in the recovery area and lead to an earlier discharge after procedure. Patient comfort and satisfaction is enhanced by the use of CO2. If it is time to schedule your colonoscopy, consider Regional Gi . We recognize that your comfort is an important component of your care. Our use of CO2 demonstrates our commitment to you.
