Treating Simple Fistulas with Laser Treatments
(http://ow.ly/zM8T30n1e8z)

Anal fistulas can be described as simple or complex, depending on how big the fistula is and how much muscle is involved. If your fistula is a simple fistula, your surgeon at California Colorectal Surgeons may opt for a laser fistulotomy. This is a quick procedure that encourages the fistula to heal.

If you have a fistula, surgery is the only option, but your surgeon will suggest which type of surgery is best for your needs. Contact us to learn more.

(http://ow.ly/gXSj30n1e8x)

The World Health Organization has listed processed meat as a carcinogen. Processed meats includes ham, bacon, and hot dogs - meat that has been preserved in some fashion. To reduce your risk of colon cancer, swap out processed meat in your diet for other non-red meat sources of protein. Beans, fish, and chicken/turkey are good options.

Notice a Change in Your Bowel Habits?
(http://ow.ly/jzgo30n1e8u)

Rectal cancer doesn't always present with symptoms during the early stages. However, if you start to notice changes in your bowel habits or consistency, it's worth a trip to the doctor. That's because rectal cancer can cause thinner stools, constipation, and diarrhea. Constipation can be caused by other factors so it's important to receive a proper diagnosis.

At California Colorectal Surgeons, your provider will perform minimally invasive surgery, depending on the location and size of the tumors.

When to Talk to Your Doctor About Blood In Your Stool
(http://ow.ly/RuqW30n1e8r)

If you notice blood in your stool, it's always a good idea to see your doctor to determine the cause of the bleeding. In some cases, bleeding is benign (e.g. fissures). However, bleeding can be a sign of colon cancer especially if it is accompanied by abdominal pain, fatigue, and weight loss.

At California Colorectal Surgeons, colon cancer can be removed via robotic surgery. If you have questions about colon cancer or minimally invasive surgery, contact us using the link provided.
