Specialist in proctology/proctologist
The specialist in proctology deals with the prevention, detection and treatment of diseases of the rectum and anus. For diagnostic purposes the proctologist uses such methods as proctoscopy (viewing of the anal canal) and rectoscopy (viewing of the rectum). In the context of these examinations tissue samples may also be taken and polyps and haemorrhoids treated. Both studies are very low risk and involve little or no pain. The patient may request an analgesic/sedative injection.
