Colonoscopy examination 大腸鏡檢查

On the day of procedure, please bring appointment slip and admission documents for admission arrangement. All personal adornments e.g. rings, necklaces and watches will be removed before the procedure. You should also remove nail polish before the examination.


The colonoscopy procedure will take around 30-60 minutes. During colonoscopy, intravenous sedation will be given. You will wake up around 1-2 hours after the procedure but the effect of the sedatives will take a day to wear off. You are advised to take leave from work on the day of examination. You should not drive, operate machinery or make important decision after colonoscopy. You will need a family member or friend to accompany you to go home.
