A coloproctologist (proctologist) is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the large intestine, the pararectal (perirectal) region and the sacrococcygeal zone.
If you suffer from constipation,hemorrhoids or anal fissures, we suggest you contact us for a consultation with a proctologist in Moscow. The highly qualified proctologists at GMS have extensive clinical experience, and our clinic has one of the highest ratings in this field of medicine.
The proctologist diagnoses and treats the following pathological conditions:
Only a specialist can correctly diagnose the condition and prescribe the necessary treatment for complicated conditions like anal fissures or paraproctitis. Diseases such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis need regular medical supervision as well as long-term treatment.
Often a person suffers from painful symptoms for a long time, but does not seek professional medical help. This can lead to further progression of the disease and the development of serious complications, and pathologies which could be quickly cured by conservative treatment will require surgical intervention. A consultation with a proctologist is highly advised should any of the following symptoms appear:
A timely visit to a proctologist is the key to completely eradicating unpleasant symptoms, restoring health, and returning to an active life without pain, discomfort or restrictions. Appointments must be arranged in advance.
A consultation with a coloproctologist begins with the patient’s medical history. The doctor will listen to the patient’s complaints, ask clarifying questions, and conduct an examination of the perianal area with a digital rectal examination. This is a commonly performed procedure in coloproctology, and necessary to make a preliminary diagnosis.
If the patient is female, then the examination by the male proctologist is always carried out in the presence of a female nurse.
Further, to obtain a complete picture of the disease, the doctor will order additional tests and examinations:
The specific lab tests and analyses required in each clinical case are selected by the doctor based on the results of the examinations. For the consultation to be as effective as possible, it is necessary for the patient to prepare in advance:
For repeated appointments, this preparation is usually not needed (unless the doctor specifies otherwise). The doctor will study and interpret the test results, determine all indications and contraindications for surgery, consider possible conservative methods of treatment, and agree with patient on a follow-up consultation.
In modern proctology, a wide range of conservative and surgical treatment methods are used. GMS specialists in Moscow use the latest non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques.
The coloproctologists at GMS Hospital are proficient in performing all types of elective and emergency surgery on the large intestine, in the rectal (rectum) region, and in the sacrococcygeal zone. We welcome patients whose treatment requires reconstructive, extended and/or combined services:
At the Center for Operative Proctology, GMS surgeons successfully treat paraproctitis, hemorrhoids, fistulas and large intestine abscesses, anal fissures, diverticulitis and its complications, anal sphincter weakness, and tumors of all parts of the large intestine. Many operations are performed as outpatient procedures, and the patient is discharged the same evening. If necessary, after the operation the patient may continue treatment in our inpatient facility.
If the disease can not be effectively treated using a conservative approach, the coloproctologist will create a surgical plan, oversee the necessary preoperative preparation, draw up a rehabilitation program for the patient, perform the surgery, and ensure competent medical observation in the postoperative period for a speedy recovery.
