The problems of the rectum have been equally urgent for both men and women in all times. These diseases completely violate the usual way of life, and every trip to the toilet, in the end, becomes anguish. "Grandmother-style" self-medication often gives absolutely no result. Moreover, it allows the inflammatory process to continue developing in the rectum. Before, the only way out in such cases was a major surgical procedure which was followed by a painful recovery period. However, nowadays new methods and technologies can achieve excellent results without invasive surgical operation.
Proctology is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of the rectum, its structure and physiology, pathology and treatment of diseases. In the "Oxford Medical" clinic, we offer the treatment of many proctologic disorders (anal fissures, haemorrhoids, anal itching and some forms of paraproctitis) at any stage of the disease. It is worth noting that only the early stages can be treated effectively and painlessly in an out-patient mode without the traditional surgical intervention and without interruption from the usual way of life. Do not delay your trip to the doctor. In fact, the sooner you contact the physician, the easier your medical treatment will be.
The Proctological Clinic of "The Oxford Medical" holds a large armoury of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. Experienced proctologists can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and select individual treatment. The most common "unpleasant" illness is a haemorrhoid. It is a pathological increase of hemorrhoids’ size. It can cause bleeding, prolapse from the anus and inflammation. The disease has 4 stages. The selection of treatment largely depends on the stage and the form of the disease. It is possible to avoid the scalpel only on the first two stages and sometimes on the early third stage.
In “The Oxford Medical” clinic we use modern proctology methods, including the ligation of hemorrhoidal bolus with latex rings, the method of infrared coagulation, which allows to treat hemorrhoids without surgery. One of the most effective treatments for hemorrhoids is the technique of latex ring ligation. Latex ring, placed on the hemorrhoidal bolus, causes the rejection of the haemorrhoid. This kind of treatment is painless and fast, which is an advantage; however, it is applicable only for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids.
For the external form, the Surgitron device can be used. The effect of infrared coagulation is achieved using thermal energy which interacts with the haemorrhoid wall tissues and vessels, causing subsequent sclerosis of the haemorrhoid. Here, the patient also avoids the long recovery period, pain, restrictive diets after the procedure and the inability to maintain an active lifestyle. However, anal pain is not always caused by the hemorrhoids. Anal fissure is another quite common pathology of the rectum. It arises from the influence of various factors. The healing process takes a long time and is often associated with some pain. In the early stages, special unctures and suppositories are very effective. Therefore, it is crucial to start the treatment as soon as possible. In our medical center the treatment of anal fissures is efficient, quick and painless. “The Oxford Medical” gives our patients confidence, optimism and hope to overcome even the toughest diseases.
