  8. 8. Curing with Care... PILES… A Lifestyle Disease PILES (clinically known as Haemorrhoids) basically, is the swelling of blood vessels near the anal opening. The lumps are formed by increased pressure on blood vessels in the area, causing them to enlarge and swell. We understand that piles may not be a subject you feel comfortable talking about, but there is no need to suffer in silence. Constipation Hard Stools Wrong toilet habits Being over weight PILES Lifting heavy loads Family history Pregnancy CAUSES Grades of Piles…. Depending upon swelling & progression Piles present in 4 stages Grade I Symptoms are mild pain, itching sensation, heaviness where patient can be cured with medicine and diet and Healing Hands Innovative Ayurvedic Therapy. Grade II Symptoms are painful defecation, recurrent bleeding, itching sensation, burning sensation, dragging sensation, and feeling of prolapse which reduces automatically after motion. This may require surgical intervention. Grade III Symptoms are painful defecation, recurrent bleeding, itching sensation, burning sensation, dragging sensation, and feeling of prolapse which may require finger reduction after motion. This requires surgical intervention. Grade IV Symptoms worsen and the prolapse is irreducible. This requires surgical intervention. NOTE : Only 30% of patients suffering from Piles will have bleeding, rest of the patients will have either burning, itching or constipation.
  9. 9. No Piles… Only Smiles..! Innovative treatment for Piles : STAPLER Surgery BEFORE SURGERY STAPLER SURGERY AFTER SURGERY Procedure : It is a minimally invasive painless procedure that reduces the prolapsed HAEMORRHOIDAL (PILES) tissue. A unique stapling technique that is used to push the swollen blood vessels back into their normal position. Preparation : Requires patient to take nothing by mouth about 4 hrs prior to the surgery. Surgery : The surgery takes only about 20 to 30 minutes. It is usually done under spinal anesthesia. It is done through a natural opening (anus), with the help of a use and throw device known as Stapler. In this surgery as there are no cuts and no stitches outside so there is no need of dressing. Post Operative Care (after surgery care) : Patient can have full diet 4 hrs post surgery. He/she can walk around just after 5–6 hrs of the surgery. Patient can be discharged within a span of 24 hrs. On discharge antibiotics and painkiller for7 to 10 days are advised. Recovery : Patient normally gets discharged from the hospital within 24 hrs. The recovery period is relatively very short. Patient can resume daily routine after discharge and join work after 3 days. NOTE : Stapler Surgery is done with any external cuts, so loss of control post surgery is a myth.
  10. 10. CONSTIPATION Constipation is often one of those topics, very few people like to discuss. It occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. Constipation is not a disease, but a symptom related to a family of diseases generally classified as 'defecation disorders'. How do you know... ? If you suffer from Chronic Constipation? The following self-assessment can help you determine whether or not you may suffer from chronic constipation. Fewer than three bowel movements in a week. The need to strain at least 25% of the time during bowel movements. A feeling of not being able to complete your bowel movements at least 25% of the time. Hard or lumpy stools at least 25% of the time. If you have experienced at least two of above symptoms for at least three months, you may have chronic constipation. If you have Obstructed Defecation Syndrome (ODS) A type of Chronic Constipation? If you have chronic constipation and also have one or more of the following symptoms at least 25% of the time during bowel movements, you may have ODS: Multiple trips to the bathroom. Prolonged straining. Incomplete elimination, and/or prolonged time to have a bowel movement. Routine use of laxatives or enemas. The need to press around your genitals or anus to have a bowel movement. Note : ODS is a form of Chronic Constipation seen in 5% of population, more common in women.
  11. 11. Lucky STARR for Constipation Treatment Option : Most of the time, chronic constipation can be relieved using a combination of Diet, Exercise, Medication and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. If these approaches do not relieve your chronic constipation, you should discuss treatment options with a Proctosurgeon as you may be suffering from a type of Chronic Constipation known as Obstructed Defecation Syndrome (ODS). BEFORE STARR SURGERY Chronic Constipation caused by ODS AFTER STARR SURGERY Bowel movement restored Diagnosis : MRI Defecography is a must. An Advanced Treatment for ODS : STARR SURGERY Relief from Chronic Constipation STARR (Stapled Trans Anal Rectal Resection) is a surgical procedure that is performed through the anus, requires no external cuts and leaves no visible scars. Using 2 surgical staplers, the procedure removes excess tissue in the rectum and reduces the deformities that causes ODS. Patients undergoing STARR are typically hospitalized for 24 Hrs. STARR surgery has a minimal recovery time after leaving the hospital. Note : In a study, 37% of women who met symptomatic criteria for constipation did not regard themselves as constipated. MRI Defecography can diagnose the type of Constipation.
  12. 12. Curing with Care... MRI DEFECOGRAPHY SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO CONSTIPATION : Defecography (Scanning of evacuation) is a MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) study of defecation, a diagnostic test that shows the rectal & anal canal as they change during defecation (having a bowel movement). This test is used to evaluate disorders of the lower bowel that are not evident by tests such as colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. Scanning of evacuation WHO MAY HAVE TO GO FOR THIS DIAGNOSTIC TEST Chronic constipation. Incomplete evacuation. Obstruction & straining during defecation. Fingering during defecation. Patient goes number of times for defecation but does not feel complete satisfaction of evacuation. Daily or alternate day hard stools. Patient has only 2 to 3 evacuations in a week and defecation is a long and time consuming process. Rectal Prolapse (something coming out from anus) Pelvic Prolapse (Bladder & Vagina) Preparation & Technique for the Procedure : A jelly paste around 300 to 400 ml is inserted in the anal region of the patient & he is asked to defecate it. All the images during the defecation process are recorded. RECTOCELE RECTO-RECTAL INTUSSUSCEPTION WHERE : This technologically advanced investigation is available at a very few places in India. In Maharashtra it is available in Mumbai & Pune. In Pune it is done only at Fidelity Diagnostics in association with Healing Hands Clinic, located at Inamdar Hospital, Fatima Nagar under the guidance of Proctosurgeon Dr. Ashwin Porwal and his team of trained doctors, staff and an experienced radiologist. For appointments kindly call our Doctors on 88882 88885 / 88882 88886 Note : MRI Defecography takes 30 mins and can be carried out anytime without any bowel preparation.

Most ignore it or opt for self medication only to experience reoccurrences and episodes of pus discharge. The truth is that these signs and symptoms are not sporadic but develop as part of the pinodial disease where a sinus tract develops from the source of infection in this anatomical region. Infection in this area develops because of the presence of ingrown hair; the risk also increases in cases of sedentary occupation (a norm nowadays), local irritation and trauma.

  21. 21. A few Stories... RECTAL PROLAPSE SURGERY MEHBOOB SOMJAL 50 yr, Teacher, Satara. I h a d b e e n s u f fe r i n g f r o m constipation since many years. But as many say some habits die hard. Same was my case. I was used to having laxatives on a daily basis. Years down the line the dosage also increased with my problem. There were times when I didnt pass stools without use of laxatives. Slowly slowly I started having severe hard stools due to which I had to manually remove them during defecation as well. It then dawned on me that I should look into the problem seriously. My digestion was down the drains. I consulted my family doctor who referred me to one of the leading Proctosurgeon Dr Ashwin Porwal. As soon as my history was taken he quickly diagnosed my ailment to be Rectal Prolapse & I was advised to undergo MRI Defecography for ODS. My reports were positive with rectoceles & was further advised to undergo STARR Surgery at Inamdar Hospital. I decided to get it done at the earliest as I wanted relief at the earliest. Today 6 months post surgery I never imagined I could be so better. If I had gone in my preventive stage maybe I would have been cured with medicines as well. All thanks to Dr Porwal for the best surgical treatment given to be. He has made my life heaven! P.O.P.S. for Pelvic Organ Prolapse REKHA GAJBHIJE 45 yr - SBI Employee I used to feel that i am cursed with this problem of constipation since 6-7 years that increased in severity day by day. I had to spend ½ to 1 hour daily in the toilet just to get satisfactory motions. I also used to have difficulty to pass urine since many years since even before marriage. Some times I used to feel that I can’t control my urine. Even slightest coughing or laughing caused dribbling of urine. These complaints made my daily life miserable. My past association with Dr Porwal for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy made me visit him immediately for a complete solution. He diagnosed me for Obstructed Defecation Syndrome & vaginal vault prolapse. My MRI Defecography too showed severe rectoceles & vaginal prolapse. I was advised to undergo pelvic organ prolapse suspension suregery (P.O.P.S) at Poona Hospital. I was discharged on day 5 with complete recovery from my problem for which I am very grateful to Dr Porwal & the entire team of Healing Hands Clinic team!

My brother got operated for Hernia just a few months before I got operated. He was completely happy with the service & suggested me to consult Dr Ashwin Porwal at the earliest. I was diagnosed for Grade III Haemorrhoids and was explained my problem was not the one to be completely cured with medications & so was advised Stapler Surgery. I had frequent bleeding with hard stools & need to strain while passing stools. My past association with Dr. Porwal for my brother made me undergo surgery without any doubts and hesitation. Today 6 months post surgery I don’t believe that I underwent surgery, such is the success of the surgery. I would definitely advise all the patients suffering from Piles to consult Dr Porwal and get the appropriate treatment.

FISTULA : Rare High Inguinal BHAGWAN JAYBHAY 45 yr, Advocate, Nagar. I was having a very poor lifestyle & sedentary pattern. Food habits were vague as due to my hectic schedule I used to eat whatever was available. Little did I realize such a dreadful problem was awaiting for me in near future. I underwent three surgeries previously and was hospitalised for 15days for each surgery of fistula. But all of them failed. Later was refused for surgery by colo rectal surgeon in Mumbai.Finally was referred by a renowned politician to Healing Hands Clinic, Dr Ashwin Porwal. MRI Fistulogram was done showing the rarest of rare fistula recto inguinal - a fistula that extended from my rectum to the Inguinal region. No mention of surgery for same exists in medical literature. Surgery for same was performed successfully and the technique is now know on name of Dr Ashwin Porwal , Pune. It took me 3-4 weeks post surgery to recover completely. But today I feel if I wouldn't meet Dr Porwal I would not be having this life that's lived happily ever after ! AYURVEDIC THERAPY : Early Costipation PRAKASH SANAP 38 yr, Teacher, Nasik. I had a severe constipation problem since few month. Frequent hard stools, incomplete evacuation & manually removing stools had become a daily habit.

I consulted him & was very happy to know that my problem could be rectified. He suggested me to undergo MRI Defecography – the newly introduced diagnostic test for chronic constipation. The reports were in the mild stage, so I was advised to undego Diet, Ayurveda therapy & Physiotherapy with medicines for my ailment. This treatment was for 6 months. Within 2 months I started getting good results. I had irregular bowel habits as well before, but now I started having regular bowels & with soft consistency.

I was excited on my first day at Texas for my job. Little did I know that change of country & lifestyle would affect my health profoundly. To keep away from parents I didn't discuss my health until I realized it needs immediate medical attention when one morning I had severe bleeding on passing stools. Googling for Piles doctor in pune made me visit India's leading Proctologist Dr Porwal. Taking my grade ii bleeding haemorrhoids in consideration Dr Porwal advised me medication for a month. But my short visit made me decide for quick surgery for permanent recovery.. Within 24 hours I was discharged & within a weeks time I'm back to States. All thanks to the invention of Stapler Surgery & Dr Porwal! SINGAPORE SOUTH AFRICA SWITZERLAND SPAIN
