What is Proctology?

Proctology is the branch of medicine that deals with the disorders of the anus, rectum, and colon. It is also known as colorectal surgery nowadays. The most common disorders that are treated under the proctology department are colon polyps, constipation, piles, anal fissure, irritable bowel syndrome, anal fistula, pilonidal sinus, abscess, inflammatory bowel diseases, etc.

What are the different anorectal diseases treated at Pristyn Care in Chennai?

Pristyn Care treats several major diseases under proctology. Our proctologists are fully trained and provide comprehensive treatment for all the major anorectal diseases, including piles, fissures, fistula, anal abscesses, and pilonidal sinus. Major diseases treated by Pristyn Care are as follows

Piles– Piles or commonly referred to as hemorrhoids, are a condition in the anal region when blood vessels become enlarged or swell. These enlarged vessels can either stay inside or protrude outside, making it harder for the person to sit, walk, and pass bowels.

Anal Fissure– Anal fissure is a condition that occurs as a result of a tear in the thin, moist tissue that appears in the anal lining. This causes grave discomfort and pain to the individual and even results in the formation of anal skin tags.

Anal Fistula– Anal fistula is a small tunnel or channel that is present inside the anal canal. The fistula connects the abscess (an infected cavity in the anus) to the opening on the skin around the anus. Prolonged abscess infection near the anus or rectum causes an anal fistula.

Pilonidal Sinus– Pilonidal sinus is a round sac of tissue in the rectal region that contains hair. Prolonged pilonidal sinus can become a cyst due to the skin infection and cause extreme pain.

Surgical procedures to treat anorectal diseases at Pristyn Care in Chennai?

Pristyn Care specializes in treating major anorectal diseases in Chennai, with a success rate of over 95%. Our partnered healthcare institutions offer advanced surgeries with modern equipment that ensure painless procedures and faster recovery. Here are some anorectal diseases treated at Pristyn Care in Chennai

  • Laser surgery Laser surgery refers to the treatment of colon, anal, and rectum diseases via laser application. Proctologists use high-energy light to cut or burn the affected tissues safely during the procedure. Laser surgery is a common procedure to treat piles, fistula, fissures, polyps, pilonidal sinus, etc. Laser surgery for anorectal diseases is usually a daycare procedure which means the patient can go home on the same day of surgery after consulting the doctor.
  • Sphincterotomy Sphincterotomy involves small incisions in the internal anal sphincter to release the tension. This procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia, and the patient can go home on the same day of the surgery. The surgeon may perform hemorrhoidectomy, fissurectomy, and fistulotomy alongside sphincterotomy, depending on the type of disease.
  • Ligation of the Intersphincteric Fistula Tract (LIFT) LIFT is a treatment where the surgeon makes an incision to separate the skin above the fistula from the sphincter muscles. The fistula is then sealed at both ends and cut open so it lies flat.
  • Incision and drainage In case of an anal abscess, the surgeon may choose to drain the infected region. The surgeon makes a small incision over the infected area to shorten the length of any fistula that may eventually progress. The wound is then packed with iodophor gauze, which is removed after 24 hours.
  • Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy The surgeon uses stapled hemorrhoidectomy to treat third-degree piles (hemorrhoids that protrude with straining). In this procedure, the hemorrhoids are prolapsed downward by expanding tissues supporting hemorrhoid. It is achieved by inserting a circular tube into the anal canal. A long thread or suture is placed or woven circumferentially within the anal canal above the internal hemorrhoids. The hemorrhoidal cushions are pulled back up into their normal position within the anal canal.
