Anal/Rectal

Anal Rectal Surgery Banner

Talk to a board certified ARC general surgeon to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan for symptoms caused by a disease in the colon, anal, and rectal regions. Anal pain, colon pain, rectal pain, anal cancer, hemorrhoids, anal fissure, rectal cancer, and other diseases each require a treatment plan built specifically for your condition after consulting with your referring physician and other specialists when needed. Some of these conditions may require the collaboration of several specialists; your general surgeon can coordinate the care and guide you throughout the process.

Anal and rectal diagnosis and care from ARC general surgeons

ARC general surgeons can tailor the treatment of various anorectal conditions to your specific situation. If your treatment plan includes surgery, we will help guide you through the surgical options available. We offer laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery, which can mean a better outcome, faster recovery with less pain and bleeding, and a shorter hospital stay.

Anal Fistula and Fissure Procedures

Anal fistulas tend to form when an anal gland that has developed a pus-filled infection (abscess). Fistulas can occur with certain conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, or may happen after radiation therapy for cancer. An anal fissure is a tear in the tissue of your anus. Fissures are caused by the anal tissue stretching too much, which can happen during a hard bowel movement and causes pain and bleeding.
