Will sedation be used for my colonoscopy?

For your safety and comfort, we use MAC sedation, where board certified anesthesiologists monitor you before, during, and after your procedure.

  • MAC sedation provides safe and effective conscious sedation, anxiety control, and pain control. It carries fewer side effects with it, and has a quicker recovery period than general anesthesia. 

  • Should you choose not to use MAC sedation, as a board-certified gastroenterologist Dr. Sinha is fully qualified to provide alternative forms of conscious sedation for you. Other forms of sedation can have more side effects associated with them and carry a longer period of recovery. 

  • We understand that not all patients have the same medical needs, requirements, and/or desires, which is why we offer comprehensive personalized care with your safety and comfort being our utmost priority. 

  • We encourage you to discuss all of your options for care with us at your initial consultation, and with your board-certified anesthesiologist prior to your procedure.
