Also known as piles, hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anus and lower abdomen. Causes of hemorrhoids include straining, constipation, pregnancy, etc. These cushions of swollen tissue and blood vessels can be classified as external or internal. External hemorrhoids can cause pain, swelling and itching, while internal hemorrhoids can cause itching, bleeding, swelling, and eventually prolapse, meaning they bulge outside of the anus (hemorrhoidal disease) and usually need surgery.

Our experts use the latest procedures to permanently mend prolapsed hemorrhoids on an outpatient basis, with almost painless recovery and a quick return to normal activities:

Anal fissures

An anal fissure is a tear of the skin at the anal verge. It is caused by straining your sphincter muscles when constipated or having difficulty passing a stool. In most cases, anal fissures aren’t too deep and can heal on there own, but if there is too much pressure on the sphincter muscles they can get worse.

The first course of action is medical treatment using ointments, pain killers and stool softeners. However, if the tissue has not healed in three months and scar tissue is forming, then anal fissure surgery may be needed.

Our team provides both non-invasive and advanced surgical techniques to repair the damage, offering solutions with the most painless recovery and a quickest possible return to normal activities:

  • Non-surgical management
  • Surgical lateral sphincterotomy – this is usually sufficient to mend the fissure.

Anal fistulas

Anal fistulas are tube-shaped passages between the outer skin of the anus and the inner rectum or anal canal. Unless they are treated, the single inflammatory tract can develop into a more complex anal fistula where the tract branches off into multiple openings.

Symptoms include pain, discomfort, pus secretion, an increase in diarrhea, and/or an extra opening somewhere near the anus.

Fistulas can also get progressively worse, so it is important have the anal area examined if you have any pain or bleeding.

At Novomed, complicated  and recurrent cases can be treated with lasers and other advanced techniques.
