Live • Learn • Life: Don’t Let A Pain In Your Butt Ruin Your Day

Your colorectal health is too important to ignore

Anorectal disorders can seem to be an embarrassing, uncomfortable topic, but they’re more common than you think. For example, one study estimates that more than 1 out of 2 Americans older than 50 have experienced hemorrhoids. Other anorectal disorders include: rectal bleeding, anal fissures, fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, and chronic anal pain. These disorders may occur because of long-standing constipation or other lifestyle habits, and treatment options include medical and surgical techniques. Join Michael Dolberg, MD, a Board-Certified General and Colorectal Surgeon at Memorial, as he explains treatment options, including minimally invasive surgery, and discusses how you can achieve and maintain gastrointestinal health.

Speaker: Michael Dolberg, MD
Colorectal Surgeon
