Arrive at check in time, see DIRECTIONS TO OUR FACILITY, checking in at either Oregon Endoscopy Center (OEC) or the Surgical Procedure Area (SPA).

To prepare for your ileoscopy you will want to follow instructions provided by our office, as instructions are tailored towards individual patient’s history.   

  • Take your usual medications (except the ones that are listed above) with a small sip of water the morning of your exam including pain relievers and anti‑anxiety medications.   If you are taking blood thinning medications or  diabetic medications, follow the MEDICATION INSTRUCTIONS unless specified by our office with special instructions..  You may continue aspirin products.

Arrange for someone to drive you home as you will be medicated for this procedure.  You may NOT take a taxi or a bus home.  If you are scheduled at OEC you will be with us approximately 2 hours. If you are scheduled at SPA you will be with us approximately 3‑4 hours.
