Solitary Rectal Ulcer Syndrome Treatment

If symptoms are minimal then no treatment may be necessary. Keeping the stools soft and avoiding straining should help. Sometimes glycerine suppositories will help emptying. Pelvic floor physiotherapy/ biofeedback may help some patients to retrain their pelvic floor muscles and improve symptoms.

In some cases where the solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is associated with a significant internal prolapse a ventral mesh rectopexy may be recommended.

What our patients think...
I’m grateful to Mr Ismail that the operation was very successful, with minimal post-operative pain, rapid healing and no complications or infections. Whilst I was an inpatient  in the Priory Hospital I had frequent visits from Mr Ismail during my hospital stay, often twice daily, which I felt was very reassuring. ”
