Pelvic Floor and Functional bowel problems needing surgery-

  • Severe Constipation– A small proportion of patients with very severe constipation, not responding to medical treatment, and affecting the quality of life may need surgery in the form of total colectomy. The small bowel is joined to the rectum, reducing the transit time of intestinal contents.
  • Obstructed Defecation Syndrome – This is a group of disorders leading to obstruction or blockage of passages of stools caused by pelvic floor dysfunction. This can be due to internal rectal prolapse, Rectocele, dyssynergia or pelvic floor descent. In a select group of patients, Surgeries like Rectopexy, STARR procedure, and Rectocele repair can be performed.
