ColoLAVAGE Colon Hydrotherapy Session: $90
The ColoLAVAGE, a trademarked alternative prep for colonoscopy, is a method of lower bowel cleansing consisting of a low dosage of traditional oral prep combined with natural formulas and and specialized colonic irrigation (colon hydrotherapy) techniques using filtered water with a state of the art FDA/CE approved equipment. The ColoLAVAGE is used for preparation prior to radiological or endoscopic examination.
This is a single Extended Colon Hydrotherapy Session (2 hour appointment) that is best scheduled in our office in Rochester the same day as your endoscopic exam. Although this treatment is coordinated with the client's Gastroenterologist's office, it is not covered by insurance. If you have an Employee Benefits Card or a Health Savings Account, those can be used to cover the cost of your treatment.

Please contact our office for instructions on how to prepare for your ColoLAVAGE session and if you'd like assistance coordinating your ColoLAVAGE session with your GI doctors office.
Once you've been given the approval by the Gastroenterologist's office, you will need to schedule your colon hydrotherapy session. If your colonoscopy exam is scheduled at 11:30 am or later, your colon hydrotherapy session can be scheduled on the same day as your colonoscopy. If your exam is scheduled before 11:30 am, your colon hydrotherapy session will need to be scheduled the afternoon before. It is best to schedule your colonoscopy exam for 11:30 am or later to ensure an optimal bowel preparation.
