NÎMES is something new at Polyclinique Grand Sud

A new treatment using a laser probe to treat anal diseases at the Grand Sud Clinic.

At the Grand Sud Clinic in Nîmes, patients can now benefit from new laser probe technology to treat sacrococcygeal cysts (at the top of the buttock fold) and hemorrhoids. This innovative approach is still not widely used in France, but it offers the possibility of significantly reducing the recovery period and postoperative pain.

With several years of experience in applying laser probe technology in Belgium, it is now offered by Dr. Pierre Arnaud Widar, abdominal and gastrointestinal surgeon, at the Grand Sud Clinic.

Coccygeal cyst, which is often painful and uncomfortable, is usually treated by radical excision, resulting in a long recovery period and complex care. The new laser method consists of emitting 360-degree heat on the sinus walls, without removing the pilonidal fistula. The procedure, which lasts from 15 to 45 minutes, stimulates healing of the gradual obstruction of the cavity, thus avoiding large wounds, cleaning and postoperative care.

Hemorrhoids, a common condition among people between the ages of 40 and 65, can also be treated with a laser probe. The hot energy of the laser destroys/obliterates the vessels responsible for the development of hemorrhoids, leading to fibrotic shrinkage and reduction of hemorrhoidal tissue.

The usual techniques are effective, but lead to severe postoperative pain, a recovery period of two to three months plus a one-month break. But with this innovative technique, the patient recovers better from the procedure. ” It is a painless procedure that allows for rapid recovery, preservation of healthy tissue, and minimal postoperative care. », specifies Dr. Widar. Laser procedures, which are most often performed on an outpatient basis, under general or local anesthesia, allow a return to professional activities in just 7 to 10 days, significantly reducing downtime.

Since the arrival of Dr. Pierre-Arnaud Widar, Dr. Emmanuel d'Errico, an abdominal and gastrointestinal surgeon, has trained and begun performing laser probe surgery. Polyclinique Grand Sud now offers a revolutionary alternative to conventional treatments for sacrococcygeal cysts and hemorrhoids.
