Anal Pain Treatment Options

  • Cancerous tumors of either the anus or rectum can be treated with surgery, especially if detected in the early stages.
  • Blood clots or an abscess may require drainage.
  • If a patient experiences skin irritation or an infection, we often treat it with prescription medicine or topical cream.

Expert Hemorrhoid Treatment

A great majority of patients that call our practice complain of hemorrhoidal symptoms. Hemorrhoids can be a symptom of more serious disorders. At Colon & Rectal Surgical Specialists of New York, our doctors have established the Hemorrhoid Treatment Center to provide the specialized care that patients with hemorrhoids need.

Our Mission

To restore your health and quality of life by relieving pain associated with conditions of the anus as well as easing any fears and embarrassment you may have regarding rectum treatments.

Treating Anal Fissures

An Anal Fissure can cause a significant amount of discomfort for the sufferer. A Fissure is a small tear right at the anal verge. Occasionally, medication is all that is required for treatment, but if the problem persists, a surgical intervention may be necessary.


A colonoscopy procedure safeguards patients from developing colon cancer. Colonoscopies are recommended for every patient over the age of 50. If any polyps are detected, the specialists at CRSSNY are often able to remove them without additional surgeries.
