The proctologist is the surgical specialist who is responsible for the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the anus and rectum. The proctologists are in charge of performing colonoscopies, rectoscopies, defecography, anal manometry, ostomies, etc. The VOT Hospital has a Proctology Unit.
Together with classic processes such as fistulas, fissures and hemorrhoids, functional alterations such as anal incontinence and constipation have been appearing, as well as other disorders of the anorectal function and defecation. These last pathologies have a growing social demand due to the improvement of diagnostic techniques as well as therapeutic procedures.
On the other hand, the latest advances in the diagnosis of the Human Papillomavirus (the cause of more than 90% of anal cancer cases), together with the possibility of preventing infection by the most aggressive types through the administration of a vaccine and the possibility of monitoring and treating precancerous lesions have allowed us to implement an anal cancer prevention program.
