Anorectal Disorders Program
A Comprehensive Approach to Treating Anorectal Disorders
For many people, anorectal disorders such as hemorrhoids, fecal incontinence, fistulas, abscesses or fissures are a source of discomfort, pain, embarrassment and worry. With prompt treatment and certain lifestyle changes, these conditions can be treated, usually on an outpatient basis. In addition, seeing a doctor as soon as symptoms develop can help ensure that the condition does not get worse or mask a more serious condition, such as anal cancer.
Our Anorectal Disorder Program surgeons have a long record of successful outcomes and are experts at performing the PPH procedure for hemorrhoidal disease.
