Tampa Colorectal Specialists: Specializing in You.
Focusing in treating all colorectal & anorectal issues including Hemorrhoids, Colorectal Cancer, Anal Fistulas, Anal Fissures, IBD, Diverticulitis and more
Colorectal surgery is a field dealing with the disorders of the colon (large intestine), rectum and anus. Colorectal issues include hemorrhoids, colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis), anal fissures and anal fistula. Surgical treatments Dr. Itriago specializes include laparoscopic and robotic colectomy, colostomy, hemorrhoidectomy and fistulotomy.
Hemorrhoids are one of the conditions we most commonly treat at our clinic. They're usually caused by overstraining during pregnancy or bowel movements, but are fairly common amongst men and women. Hemorrhoids can also be a side effect of obesity or other health issues. While infamously uncomfortable, hemorrhoids are fortunately fairly easy to diagnose and treat.
How We Can Help
There are a number of treatment options available and surgery isn't always the best choice. Every patients' case is different, so if one treatment isn't ideal, there are plenty of options to consider. Here, we offer treatments ranging from lifestyle and diet change recommendations, to medications, to new minimally invasive options (THD) to traditional hemorrhoidectomy/excisions.
Treating Anal Fistulas
Anal fistula is a very common anorectal issue occurring in up to 50% of patients with abscesses. They are also commonly seen in patients with Crohn's disease or those who are receiving radiation treatment. Fortunately, the treatment is usually minimally invasive and can be performed in our office with a local anesthetic. Learn more about this condition by clicking below.
