Colorectal surgery is a specialized medical field dedicated to addressing conditions affecting the rectum, anus, and colon. In essence, this surgical discipline encompasses a wide spectrum of disorders that influence the lower part of the digestive system. The lower digestive tract comprises the colon, a hollow tube extending from the small intestine to the anus. The colon’s role involves absorbing water and storing digested waste before elimination. The terminal segment of the colon is the rectum, housing sphincter muscles that prevent unintended waste expulsion through the anus.
Seeking regular consultation with our highly skilled and experienced colorectal surgeon holds immense advantages for your overall health and well-being. Our colorectal surgeons are not only equipped to treat existing disturbances or irregularities within the colon, rectum, or anus, but they also play a crucial role in preventive healthcare. By proactively addressing potential disorders and providing personalized guidance, our specialists contribute significantly to your long-term health. Much like other medical conditions, early detection and intervention are paramount when it comes to issues related to the lower digestive tract. Regular consultations with our colorectal surgeon allow for the timely identification of any developing conditions, enabling prompt treatment and management. This proactive approach can lead to faster recovery times, reduced complications, and improved quality of life. Our colorectal surgeons possess a deep understanding of the intricate anatomy and complex functioning of the digestive system. This expertise allows them to not only diagnose and treat existing problems but also to offer valuable insights into maintaining optimal digestive health. From recommending dietary modifications to suggesting lifestyle changes, our colorectal surgeons can guide you towards practices that promote digestive wellness and help prevent future issues. Moreover, establishing a consistent relationship with our colorectal surgeon fosters trust and open communication. You can openly discuss any concerns, symptoms, or changes you’ve noticed in your digestive health, knowing that you are receiving expert advice and care. Regular consultations with our colorectal surgeon extend beyond addressing current ailments – they are a proactive investment in your long-term health. By availing yourself of their expertise and guidance, you can take proactive steps towards preventing potential disorders and maintaining a healthy digestive system. This approach empowers you to lead a life free from digestive discomfort and with the assurance of comprehensive medical support.
Our accomplished colorectal surgeons provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for a range of conditions, including:
An anal fissure is a common condition characterized by a small tear in the delicate and moist tissue called mucosa that lines the anus. This tear can occur due to various factors, with one of the most common triggers being the passage of hard or large stools. As a result of this tear, individuals often experience discomfort, pain, and bleeding during bowel movements. The symptoms of an anal fissure can range from mild to severe. In addition to pain and bleeding, individuals might also experience itching, burning, and irritation around the anal area. These symptoms can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, making even routine activities uncomfortable. Moreover, the presence of an anal fissure can lead to another complication – spasms in the anal sphincter. The anal sphincter is a ring-like muscle located at the end of the anus, responsible for controlling the opening and closing of the anus. When an anal fissure is present, this muscle can go into spasms, causing further pain and discomfort. If left untreated, anal fissures can become chronic and persist for an extended period. Therefore, seeking medical attention is crucial for timely diagnosis and appropriate management. Treatment options for anal fissures may include dietary changes, topical ointments, and in some cases, surgical intervention. An anal fissure is a common condition that can cause significant discomfort and impact daily life. Understanding its causes, symptoms, and available treatments is essential for individuals who suspect they might be experiencing this condition. Seeking medical advice and treatment can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall well-being.
An anal fistula refers to an infected tunnel that extends between the anal opening and the surrounding skin. Typically stemming from an infection that originates in an anal gland, it can result in the development of an abscess, a swollen area filled with infected tissue and fluid. This fistula creates a tunnel beneath the skin’s surface that links with the infected gland. The small glands located within the anus generate mucus and can occasionally become infected. If these infections fail to heal properly, they can give rise to the formation of an anal fistula.
Haemorrhoids, often referred to as piles, are swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus, resembling varicose veins. They can manifest as internal, situated within the rectum, or external, located beneath the skin surrounding the anus. Internal haemorrhoids comprise small arterial branches and contribute to the blood supply of the anus. External haemorrhoids are vein-related. Normally inconspicuous, they can become problematic at times. Complications involving internal haemorrhoids are termed “internal haemorrhoidal disease.” Patients may experience occasional symptoms or chronic, persistent issues.
Troubles associated with external haemorrhoids arise when a blood clot forms in a vein near the anal opening, leading to a condition known as thrombosed external haemorrhoid. This condition presents as a firm lump externally, often accompanied by anal pain and bleeding during bowel movements.
A pilonidal sinus (PNS) is a tiny channel or tunnel in the skin that might accumulate fluid or pus, resulting in the development of a cyst or abscess. Typically found in men, it forms in the crease of the buttocks, extending from the base of the spine to the anus. Hair, dirt, and debris typically gather within a pilonidal cyst. This condition can lead to intense pain, infection, as well as discharge of pus and blood. Additionally, a pilonidal sinus can emit an unpleasant odor.
Within the realm of colorectal care, various procedures cater to different conditions:
Resection: This involves the removal of the damaged segment of the lower digestive tract. The ends of the intestine are then either reconnected through an anastomosis or, in certain cases, our surgeon may opt for a strictureplasty, which widens the intestine without removing a section.
Colostomy: This procedure entails the removal of a portion of the colon or rectum along with lymph nodes. An opening is created in the abdominal wall for waste elimination. Colostomies can be temporary or permanent, depending on the patient’s condition.
Laparoscopic Surgeries: These minimally invasive procedures offer rapid recovery, reduced postoperative discomfort, and minimal scarring. They are particularly suitable for various colorectal issues.
In addition to these, our services at Zia Medical Center encompass proctology, addressing pelvic floor disorders.
