About

Bio

I have been in practice for over 20 years. I treat all aspects of general surgery. I specialize in hyperhidrosis. I also specialize in breast diseases and surgery.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Probably skin tags: When the hemorrhoidal inflammation decreases you may develop anal skin tags which is the skin that was stretched as a result of the inflammation. You need to have a doctor examine it to give you an accurate diagnosis

Unkown: Robinul (glycopyrrolate) is an anticholinergic drug so the side effects will include dry mouth, headaches, urinary retention, blurry vision and several others. The maximun dose should be 8 mg per day. There really are no long term effects except that the body adapts to the meds which will require you to keep taking higher doses. I would suggest a more permanent solution to your hyperhidrosis.

Yes : It can be done with just local but i would not recommend it. I would also try to find a non-operative treatment before attempting surgery. Do everything you can to avoid surgery. The recovery is very painful and there are many nonsurgical alternatives that are very effective.
