  • Peri-anal lump/s
  • Peri-anal discharge

Our consultants have the expertise to perform all of the proctologic surgeries mentioned above. Our specialists are able to perform many of these surgeries through a minimal invasive approach for anal and pilonidal using the laser, THD Doppler technique or Ligasure. This helps patients to recover faster, and return to work and normal functions earlier.
