I am Dr. Pravin Gore, Proctologist. Today I will talk about Constipation. It is a very common problem. What is constipation? Is it the hard stool which is difficult to pass? Or patient has to push the stool? Or is it the blockage which happens? So, there are various definition. Patient feels no urge to go to the toilet. And they have to take medications. Patient would never be able to understand since when he is suffering from constipation. So, there are various tests that can be done to treat constipation.
We do the lab testing to identify the problems. We have scientific methods to overcome this problem. It is not always surgery. We do holistic approach. Dietary and lifestyle changes are required. We do pelvic therapy. 70-80% of the patients have found relief by taking this therapy. We also offer different kinds of surgeries to the patient like Stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR). 2nd is laparoscopic surgery. We do botox to get rid of constipation. So, constipation is a surgically curable domain. So, it has to be investigated properly and diagnosed properly.
