Proctology is the branch of medicine that deals with the disorders of the anus, colon, and rectum. Proctology can also be referred to as a colorectal exam. Proctologists specialize in the final part of the digestive system. A variety of conditions are monitored by proctologists. These include:

  • Severe constipation - Feeling as if there's a blockage in the rectum that prevents bowel movements.
  • Anal fistulas - An infected tunnel between the skin and the anus. Usually the result of an infection in an anal gland that spread to the skin.
  • Gallstones - Hardened deposits within the fluid inside the gallbladder.
  • Rectal prolapse - This condition occurs when part of the large intestine slips outside the anus.
  • Pruritus ani - A condition where the skin around the anus is itchy.
  • Anorectal disorder - A group of disorders that occur at the junction of the anal canal and the rectum.
  • Hemorrhoids - Caused from strains during bowel movements. They are a group of swollen veins anywhere in the region of the anus.

Proctologists use various instruments. Common ones are forceps, clamps, and suture cutters. Specialty instruments are anoscopes, rectoscopes, proctoscopes, and colonoscopes. Medical Device Store carries all three in addition to obturator's, angled needles, and telescopes. All products are from KARL STORZ and are made of genuine OEM stainless steel.
