While occasional constipation is a common condition, some people experience chronic constipation that can interfere with their everyday life. Our compassionate physicians understand that many different factors can influence your digestive health, from dietary choices to chronic illnesses. And, at our Department of Proctology, we don’t simply treat your symptoms; we also take the time to determine – and address – the underlying cause.
Regain digestive health.
We work to provide you with meaningful, long-term improvements in your health. Prior to creating a constipation treatment plan, our proctologists will evaluate a number of factors, including your medical history, family history, lifestyle, stress levels, and other symptoms. We may also perform diagnostic tests, such as imaging scans or colonoscopies. With the latest medical technologies on site, we’re able to streamline the process and help you get the answers you deserve.
Treatment options for chronic constipation may include:
- Dietary fiber supplements
- Medications to loosen the stool
- Stimulant and non-stimulant laxative medications
We typically recommend starting with conservative constipation treatment options. In most cases, you are able to regain normal digestive habits with one or more of these therapies. However, we also offer more advanced treatments, such as colorectal surgery, as needed.
