Coloproctology is a field of medicine that combines abdominal surgery and gastroenterology in the study of diseases of the rectum, colon, anal canal and perianal region, and develops methods for their diagnosis, treatment and prevention. This includes a wide range of pathological conditions, from hemorrhoids and anal fissures to malignant neoplasms of the colon, severe ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
Causes of disease
The occurrence of such diseases is facilitated by:
- improper nutrition;
- bad ecology;
- genetic predisposition;
- passive lifestyle;
- and some other factors.
The severity of the disease can range from minor to life-threatening.
When to see a doctor?
Specialists of the K+31 clinics recommend contacting a doctor with the following symptoms:
- the occurrence of pain in the abdomen, anus or perineum;
- a systematic increase in gas formation, bloating;
- violation of stool frequency - constipation or prolonged diarrhea;
- discharge of blood through the anus during stool and outside bowel movements;
- prolapse or inflammation of hemorrhoids;
- discharge of mucus or pus from the anus;
- the occurrence of anal itching;
- false urge to defecate;
- fecal and gas incontinence;
- prolapse of the rectum;
- the appearance of tumor-like formations in the anus;
- when these complaints are combined.
Examination and treatment
Treating a patient with a colon disease is a very delicate problem that requires an attentive and sensitive approach from a specialist. Early diagnosis of pathologies can significantly improve treatment outcomes.
For the treatment of patients in K+31, both minimally invasive (surgical and non-surgical) interventions and extensive operations for cancer, diverticulosis, inflammatory and other pathological conditions of the colon are used.
The use of new surgical technologies and anesthetic support in K+31 allows minimizing pain in the postoperative period and shortening the rehabilitation period.
Features of the initial examination
The effectiveness of your first doctor's appointment depends on how you prepare for it. At the first examination, the specialist, first of all, must examine the perineal area and perform a digital examination of the rectum. Then the doctor performs a visual examination of the anal canal and rectum - anoscopy and sigmoidoscopy. It should be noted that visual examination of the rectum is an important element in the examination of the patient.
In order to further clarify the state of internal organs, the patient can be additionally assigned:
- ultrasound research methods;
- endoscopic research methods: colonoscopy, video capsule colonoscopy;
- radiation diagnostic methods, including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
