5 Reasons Why Robotic Surgery is so Beneficial

The physicians at West Valley Colon & Rectal Surgery Center are experts in their field. For example, Dr. Ramanujam’s research is featured in medical textbooks for future generations of colon and rectal surgeons.

Traveling With Bowel Incontinence

Bowel incontinence (fecal incontinence) is a condition in which the patient cannot control his or her bowel movements. However, bowel incontinence is not just limited to stool and can include the inability to control the passing of gas as well.

Understandably, bowel incontinence can be very embarrassing, especially if an accident occurs in public.

Anorectal disease is an umbrella term used to describe conditions of the anus or rectum. Plenty of conditions fall under this category, but the most common ones treated by the physicians at West Valley Colon & Rectal Surgery Center are hemorrhoids, bowel incontinence, anal abscesses, and anal fissures. Fortunately, these conditions can be preventable. Knowing the prevention methods can be very important if you have a family history of these conditions or are at risk of developing them.
