Procedure Highlights

Screening Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a safe and effective method of examining the full lining of the colon and rectum, using a long, flexible, tubular instrument. It is used to diagnose colon and rectal problems and to remove the colon polyps that cause colon cancer. Most colonoscopies are done on an outpatient basis with minimal inconvenience and discomfort.

In Office Treatment for Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoid treatment options include both invasive and non-invasive methods. Non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques include rubber band ligation and Infrared coagulation therapy, simple procedures that can be in the office.

Robotic & Laparoscopic Colectomy

Minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery involves using multiple trocars (thin tubes) placed through 3 to 5 small incisions. These incisions are usually less than 0.5 cm (less than ΒΌ inch).

Treatment for Anal Fissure

An anal fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anal canal, just inside the opening. It is associated with spasm of the lower portion of internal anal sphincter muscle (the 'automatic door closer') abnormally raising the pressure in the lower portion of the anal canal. This increased pressure reduces the blood flow to the base of the fissure, prohibiting healing. Failure of the muscle to relax normally during bowel movements increases the trauma to fissure itself.
