Office-Based Non-Endoscopic Treatments for Hemorrhoids (DV059)
Released:  May 2013
Viewing Time:  40 minutes

This CME activity consists of the ASGE video, Office-Based Non-Endoscopic Treatments for Hemorrhoids, followed by a post-assessment and evaluation.

This video covers the non-surgical care of hemorrhoids and fissures, which are something that should easily be part of every gastroenterologist’s practice. Many gastroenterologists have previously tended to shy away from caring for these issues. The content of this video includes:
• Antaomy and pathophysiology of anorectum.
• Proper physical exam and endoscopic exam of anorectum.
• Care of anal fissures, other spastic disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction.
• Care of hemorrhoids, including the need to address coexistent issues at the time of hemorrhoid care.
• Demonstration of in-office or ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) care of hemorrhoids.

See a preview of this video content here.
