Why should you see an expert proctologist?

Proctology is a specialty in medicine that treats patients with conditions affecting the anus and the rectum [Figure 1].  Proctologic disorders include Anal Fistula, Anal Fissure, Anal Pain, Hemorrhoids, and other conditions such as inflammation, bleeding, infection, cancer, and skin disorders like warts and tags.

Proctology is a highly specialized field in medicine.  In the USA, a doctor spends 6 additional years of training in general surgery and colorectal surgery in order to become American Board Certified in the specialty.

Do you always need an intervention or a surgical procedure for proctologic conditions?

Dr. Maher Abbas believes in a holistic approach to the treatment of proctologic disorders.  The majority of his patients are treated successfully with medications.  An office-based procedure or a surgical operation is reserved for a small group of patients with severe symptoms or those who do not respond to medical treatment.  However, if a procedure is needed, Dr. Maher A. Abbas customizes it to meet the patient’s needs.  Dr. Maher Abbas provides the entire spectrum of treatment from Minimally Invasive Proctologic Procedures to more advanced techniques (MIPP – Minimally Invasive Proctologic Procedures For Hemorrhoids, Fistula, Fissure)
