We are pleased to announce that Dr. Anantha Padmanabhan’s presentation at the 2017 American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) Annual Scientific and Tripartite Meeting, “Patient Satisfaction with Propofol for Outpatient Colonoscopy: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind Study,” has been chosen as first prize overall to receive the Michigan Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons Award for Clinical/Podium . The study was completed at Taylor Station Surgical Center as an effort to continuously improve our patient’s experience with excellent clinical research and to reduce concerns in obtaining a screening colonoscopy, a vital tool in preventing Colon Cancer. The study clearly demonstrated the superiority of Propofol over a combination of Fentanyl and Midazolam (Conscious Sedation) for colonoscopies in an outpatient setting both from a patient satisfaction standpoint and from a provider perspective.
