Treatment for Anorectal Disease

Our expert surgical team offers comprehensive care for patients with anorectal disorders, including hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal fistula, and infections of the anus and rectum.

What is anorectal disease?

Anorectal disease is a name given to a group of painful or socially limiting, but common, conditions, including hemorrhoids, tears, or infections that affect the anorectal region.

Tests and procedures

Depending on your diagnosis, you may have a physical exam that could include an examination of the lower part of the colon, rectum, and anus using a small scope. In addition, your doctor may want to get more information through blood tests, ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI. We understand that some procedures and tests required for diagnosis are uncomfortable. We will do our best to ensure your comfort during the process.

Treatment and recovery

Depending on your condition, treatment can include dietary and lifestyle changes, physical therapy, and procedures in the office or operating room. Surgical recovery time depends on the type of surgery you have and whether you also have other treatments. We will make sure you have the resources and information you need to return to health as quickly as possible.
