Are You Experiencing Rectal Bleeding?

Book your visit with us, no referral needed.

What to Expect During Your Visit


Our doctors will learn about your case and ask questions regarding when your symptoms started, how often they occur, the color of bleeding (bright red blood, dark red, or black), how your bowel movements are, and more.

Rectal Exam

We conduct a physical exam of the anus and rectum and check for any abnormalities such as hemorrhoids or fissures. Hemorrhoids can also occur outside of the anus, known as external hemorrhoids.

Endoscopic Exam

In some cases, we use endoscopic procedures to identify the source of the bleeding and examine the rectum and gastrointestinal tract. Exams are performed under anesthesia by our board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure a painless experience.

Don't Wait Early Detection and Diagnosis Is Key

Because there are many possible causes of rectal bleeding, it is important to see a colorectal specialist right away. While most cases are minor and can be resolved fairly easily, rectal bleeding can be a sign of something more serious and needs to be checked in all instances. We invite patients throughout Long Island, Garden City, and East Setauket to request a consultation to speak with one of our specialists. You can also call one of our five offices directly.

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.

What Causes Rectal Bleeding?

Anal Fissure

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.

How Is Rectal Bleeding Treated?

high-fiber foods

Minor Cases

The majority of anal fissure, hemorrhoid, or constipation cases can be treated with dietary changes that improve bowel patterns. Our doctors may recommend increasing fiber intake, drinking at least 10 glasses of water a day, and using prescribed medication. Hemorrhoids and anal fissures can also be relieved by soaking in a warm bath. If a hemorrhoid is very large and persists despite treatment, we may recommend surgery to remove it from the anus and rectum area.

colorectal surgery

Serious Cases

If rectal bleeding is caused by colon cancer or other serious diseases such as ulcerative colitis, surgery may be necessary. We use laparoscopic and robotic technology to ensure the highest precision and avoid disturbing surrounding tissue. We may also prescribe chemotherapy or radiation treatment for patients with colon or anal cancer.
