Rescue Solutions to Bid Farewell to Anal Fissures

You might be curious about the methods for treating anal fissures. At N.A. Hemorrhoids Clinic in Vancouver, we offer an exclusive combination of traditional and minimally invasive treatment methods.

Guoyi Traditional Chinese Treatment – Ba Zhi San

Combining herbal ointments with natural therapies, this treatment relieves pain, stops bleeding, aids wound healing, and promotes recovery. This approach restricts blood flow to the affected area, thus eliminating symptoms, reducing swelling, and expediting recovery.

Minimally Invasive Surgery and Natural Treatment

For more severe cases, we employ natural therapies alongside minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is typically used for patients with prolonged and unresolved or potentially complicated anal fissures. When anal fissure pain persists and self-healing is not achievable, a combination of minimally invasive surgery and the “Ba Zhi San” ointment treatment becomes an effective solution.

This method seeks to find the most effective resolution for your anal fissure concerns, taking into account both Western and traditional Chinese medicine perspectives, allowing you to say goodbye to pain and embrace a comfortable life in Vancouver.
