Proctology (anal complaints)
Within medicine, proctology deals with complaints and disorders around the anus. Our specialist proctologists can help you if you suffer from conditions such as hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures or skin flaps. The type of treatment is closely related to the type of condition and how extensive the condition is.
Anal complaints Anal complaints often cause a great deal of inconvenience in a patient’s daily life. Many people find it difficult to take the step to make an appointment in order to solve this problem. But there really is no reason to feel ashamed. Anal complaints such as haemorrhoids, fissures, skin flaps, and fistulas are very common. At Medical Centre Jan van Goyen, you will find a professional team of proctologists who are highly experienced in the treatment of anal complaints.
This can be caused by haemorrhoids, fissures, eczema, anal tags, fistulas, an infection, etc. A proctology examination can give more clarity. A treatment will depend on the cause of the problem.
The first consultation
Before we can treat your anal symptoms, it is important to investigate the underlying cause of the problem. Our proctologists carry out an extensive analysis for this. During the first consultation, our specialists will discuss the complaint with you. In order to determine the cause, they perform an anal examination using a proctoscope. This examination takes place immediately during the first consultation and takes about 10 minutes. Immediately after the examination, your proctologist will share his findings and make a proposal for the right treatment. In some cases it is possible to carry out the treatment directly during the first consultation.
We strive to have your appointments always with the same proctologist. You can ask for it if necessary. Your own proctologist will also perform the operation and provide aftercare in the event of an operation. Since we are not a training hospital, you will not see an intern or doctor / specialist in training
