Our Services:

Many of us experience digestive issues at some point, but these conditions can significantly impact our daily lives. Here’s a breakdown of some common problems and how we can help:

Piles (Hemorrhoids):

  • Causes: Straining during bowel movements, pregnancy, obesity, and chronic constipation can contribute to piles.
  • Symptoms: painful swelling around the anus, bleeding during bowel movements, and itching.
  • Treatment: Depending on the severity, options include lifestyle changes (high-fiber diet, increased water intake), medication (pain relievers, stool softeners), rubber band ligation (minimally invasive), or surgery.

 

Fistula:

  • Causes: An abnormal connection forms between the anus and another organ, often due to an untreated abscess.
  • Symptoms: pus drainage, pain around the anus, and recurrent skin infections.
  • Treatment: Surgery is typically the only effective treatment to close the fistula tract.

 

Fissure:

  • Causes: Straining during bowel movements, chronic diarrhea, or childbirth can cause a tear in the anal lining.
  • Symptoms: severe pain during bowel movements, bleeding, and difficulty passing stool.
  • Treatment: lifestyle changes, topical medications to relax the sphincter muscle, and sometimes surgery for severe cases.

 

Pilonidal Sinus:

  • Causes: Ingrown hairs and friction in the buttocks cause a pocket to form under the skin, which can become infected.
  • Symptoms: pain, swelling, redness, and pus drainage near the tailbone.
  • Treatment: For mild cases, antibiotics and warm compresses may help. Surgery is usually required for recurring or infected pilonidal sinuses.

 

Constipation:

  • Causes: Lack of fiber in the diet, dehydration, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions can lead to constipation.
  • Symptoms: difficulty passing stool, infrequent bowel movements, straining during bowel movements, and a feeling of incomplete evacuation.
  • Treatment: Lifestyle changes (increased fiber, fluids, and exercise) are often the first line of defense. Laxatives and other medications can be helpful in some cases.

 

Acidity (GERD) or Gastritis:

  • Causes: Stomach acid backing up into the esophagus (GERD) can be caused by hiatal hernia, spicy or acidic foods, and certain medications. Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach lining, often due to infection, H. pylori bacteria, or overuse of pain relievers.
  • Symptoms: heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, and upper abdominal pain.
  • Treatment: lifestyle changes (smaller meals, avoiding trigger foods), medications to reduce stomach acid, and in some cases, surgery for GERD. Medications can also help with gastritis, and addressing the underlying cause is crucial.
