Anorectal Conditions

At the University of Chicago Medicine, our colorectal team treats the full range of anorectal diseases, including:

  • Anal fissure
  • Abscess and fistula-in-ano
  • Anal condyloma
  • Hemorrhoids and hemorrhoidal disease
  • Pilonidal disease
  • Pruritis ani

The very first step in treating these conditions is accurate diagnosis, and our team utilizes a wide range of tools to correctly confirm the presence of an anorectal disorder. These tools include leading-edge technology, including anoscopy, flexibly signoidoscopy, colonoscopy and noninvasive imaging.

In cases in which surgical treatment is required, our surgeons will work closely with the patient and other University of Chicago Medicine subspecialists to ensure the best possible outcome. We are committed to working with patients to not only treat the underlying anorectal disease but to also maintain or improve our patients’ quality of life after treatment.
