The number one reason why people come to see us is because of rectal bleeding. As trained experts in colon and rectal health, we will diagnose the cause of your rectal bleeding, pain or itching and offer immediate treatment and relief.
Hemorrhoids don’t lead to cancer, however, the symptoms of hemorrhoids, especially bleeding, are similar to those of colorectal cancer and other diseases of the digestive system. So it’s important that your symptoms be investigated by a physician specially trained in the treatment of diseases of the colon and rectum.
Hemorrhoids are more common than you think. Almost 90% of Americans will be bothered by hemorrhoids at some point in their life. Over half the population will develop hemorrhoids after the age of 30. The average person, just like Charlotte, suffers in silence before seeking medical help. Today’s advanced treatments can offer little or no recovery time and not much pain.
There is a lot of attention given to diet and exercise for good heart health, but little is talked about taking care of your colon and rectum. Constipation, the impaired ability to control gas (Incontinence), irritable bowel syndrome, and more serious diseases such as diverticulosis, Crohn’s disease, anal fissure (a small tear), anal abscess/fistula, polyps of the colon, rectum and colorectal cancer are all issues that affect these areas.
Hemorrhoid Care and Treatment Center is part of Colon Rectal Health Center. We not only relieve the pain from hemorrhoids, but we help in all areas of colon and rectal health so that you can live a healthy and happy life.
Most patients can be treated in the office quickly with minimum discomfort. Commonly used hemorrhoid treatment techniques are laser infrared coagulation, rubber banding and sclerotherapy. The vast majority of conditions can be treated without surgery. In my office we make every effort to see urgent cases immediately, or within 24 hours.
My staff and I look forward to helping you with your health concerns.
To your health and peace of mind,
Dr. Steve Abbadessa
