What is Ulcerative Colitis ?

Rectal Prolapse is a non-emergency yet socially awkward rectal condition in which the rectum (last few inches of the large intestine) passes down into the anal canal & sometimes outside the anus. This requires the patient to sometimes manually push the prolapsed tissue inside causing ruptures or cuts in unhygienic environment.

At Chirag Global Hospitals, we educate our patients to get the right assessment & treatment for Prolapsed rectum as many patients & sometimes, even doctors, confuse rectal prolapse for Piles/Hemorrhoids. Get the right treatment by getting the right diagnosis. DO NOT SHY AWAY FROM TAKING A SECOND OPINION FROM the Best Colo-Rectal Surgeons of Bangalore, India.

My experience with the doctors of Chirag hospital is very good. All the doctors are very knowledgeable about piles and fistula. They have detailed the problem, why the fistula had occurred to me, how to treat it so that it will not reoccur again, precautions to take, etc. Before going to Chirag hospital, I got operated on once before at Fortis hospital in Bangalore. I spent almost 1.5 lakhs on the treatment but the problem recurred to me within 2 months after the surgery. I got to know about Chirag hospital after searching on google and after going through the review, I booked an appointment and I took the treatment based on the doctor's suggestions. It has been a month and I am posting this review after completing 3 review appointments post-surgery. The pain is completely gone now and I am back to my work as well. Special mention to support staff and nurses, they took very good care. This is the best hospital for piles and fistula problems in Bangalore. All the best team.

I am writing this review after 3 months of my pilonidal sinus treatment. First of all i would like to thank doctor who did surgery in very proficient manner. When i visited first time, doctor clearly explained the issue and treatment. Next day morning i went and had a small procedure and within 6 hours i came back to home and doing my daily activities without any issues. Within a month wound also completely healed. We can also claim insurance for this treatment. All staff is excellent. Without a second thought you can go ahead.
