As a dedicated colorectal surgeon/proctologist, he specializes in both diagnosis and surgical treatment for issues that impact the lower digestive tract. This includes the anus, rectum and the colon. He also offers care before, during and right after the surgery, which includes implementing diagnostic and screening tests in order to detect conditions that affect the digestive tract. Among these tests include colonoscopy, ultrasound and sigmoidoscopy.
A lot of people are not comfortable discussing problems related to their digestive system, especially if it involves embarrassing disorders including hemorrhoids. Colorectal surgeons or proctologists, however, are the ones who are considered as experts in this field. Rather than lead to more serious disorders, they assist patients in diagnosing and treating the problem right away.
