STARR Procedures Treatment in Indore

The STARR procedure (Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection) is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS). ODS is a chronic condition characterized by difficulty emptying the bowels, straining, and incomplete bowel movements. It can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.


What is ODS?

ODS is a common condition affecting up to 20% of the population. It is more common in women than men and often occurs after childbirth or menopause. The symptoms of ODS can vary, but they typically include:

  • Difficulty emptying the bowels
  • Straining during bowel movements
  • Feeling like the rectum is not emptying completely
  • Leaking of stool
  • Abdominal pain or bloating

How does the STARR procedure work?

The STARR procedure is performed through the anus using a special stapling device. The surgeon removes a small section of the rectal wall, which helps to shorten the rectum and improve its function. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about 30-60 minutes.


Benefits of the STARR procedure

The STARR procedure has several potential benefits over traditional surgery for ODS, including:

  • Minimally invasive: The procedure is performed through the anus, so there are no external incisions.
  • Shorter recovery time: Most patients can go home from the hospital the same day or the next day after the procedure.
  • Less pain: The STARR procedure is generally less painful than traditional surgery.
  • Improved quality of life: Studies have shown that the STARR procedure can significantly improve symptoms of ODS and quality of life.

Risks of the STARR procedure

As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with the STARR procedure, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Damage to surrounding organs
  • Recurrence of ODS

Who is a good candidate for the STARR procedure?

The STARR procedure is a good option for patients with ODS who have not responded to other treatments, such as lifestyle changes, dietary modifications, and biofeedback. It is also a good option for patients who are at high risk for complications from traditional surgery.

If you are considering the STARR procedure, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of the procedure to determine if it is right for you.

Additional information about the STARR procedure

  • The STARR procedure was first developed in the early 2000s.
  • It is now a widely used procedure for the treatment of ODS.
