Management Strategies in Anorectal Diseases Workshop

May 17, 2024 | 1:00 - 5:30 PM
Grand Hyatt Washington | Washington D.C.
Course Directors: Waqar Quereshi, MD; Satish Rao, MD, PhD
Benign anorectal disease management is in the scope of practice of a gastroenterologist. These disorders include hemorrhoids, anal fissures, pruritus and rectal dyssynergia. These disorders are easy to diagnose and treat in the office setting. There is a variability in learning, training, and incorporating this into the GI practice setting. The good news, it is easy to learn and provide a more comprehensive service to your patients with anorectal complaints. Most patients with these ailments do not need surgical intervention and therefore should be managed by the gastroenterologist. This workshop will help you start your own anorectal clinic. 
Learning Objectives: 
• Describe steps needed to perform a thorough examination of the anorectum in the office for an accurate diagnosis and assess the severity of the disease.
• Identify how to treat hemorrhoid disease in the office and be aware of possible complications, knowing when to refer to your surgeon.
• Compare and Contrast case studies, correctly diagnosing rectal dyssynergia and when to order anorectal manometry.
• Write steps needed on how to start your own anorectal clinic, incorporating this as part of your ongoing clinical offerings.
