Dr. Pappas: Hemorrhoids are a very common problem. In fact, everybody has hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids is not in and of itself a pathology. It doesn't mean that you have something wrong with you. Hemorrhoids are normal cushions inside the anus that are there to protect the anus and help in other ways. Dr. Caliendo: The Hemorrhoid Center treats more than just hemorrhoids. A great majority of patients that call our practice complain of hemorrhoidal symptoms. Here, we established a hemorrhoid center such that we could focus in on the anorectal diseases of many of our patients. Dr. Pappas: Many times when patients present with hemorrhoids, their problem isn't hemorrhoids. Other disease processes such as fissures, fistulas, abscesses, skin conditions, all can cause similar symptoms. Dr. Caliendo: Here at CRSSNY, we treat anorectal disorders in a manner such to limit post-operative pain and recovery time. Dr. Pappas: I've seen many patients where they were told they had a hemorrhoid and in fact, it was something much more significant. Dr. Caliendo: Many of us have been treating hemorrhoidal disease for over 20 years. We have employed the latest technologies as they have arisen and we take great pride in our treatment of patients and their anorectal diseases. Dr. Pappas: And that's why seeing a board-certified surgeon at CRSSNY is of the utmost importance.
